Review quote

Since independence, African countries have struggled to adopt political and economic systems that would enhance peaceful coexistence of population groups and promote genuine development. In African Renaissance in the New Millennium: The Political, Social and Economic Discourses on the Way Forward, E. Ike Udogu, a veteran student of African studies, provides a rigorous, multidisciplinary analysis of the failure of the postcolonial state in Africa to guarantee peaceful coexistence and enhance genuine economic development. The analysis is refreshing, highly compelling, informative, and provides very useful suggestions for moving the continent forward in the twenty-first century. -- John Mukum Mbaku, Weber State University
