Brookings Institution Press, 13 трав. 2004 р. - 400 стор.
In this comprehensive narrative of the political and economic evolution of Africa, Robert I. Rotberg explains the critical events, players and policies in the continent¡¯s tumultuous shift toward democracy. The book reviews the process of decolonization throughout the continent--and subsequent debut of democracy and authoritarianism--the transition of settler-run Rhodesia into African Zimbabwe, and the battle for Southern Africa. Rotberg then traces the epic struggle to free South Africa from the yoke of apartheid, including the contributions of leaders such as Nelson Mandela. He concludes with a look at how current developments will affect Africa¡¯s continuing transition to democratic rule into the 21st century. The book includes a collection of Rotberg¡¯s best opinion pieces and analytical articles from 40 years of reporting on Africa¡¯s democratic efforts.
