Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Explores sources, patterns, and likely evolution of political change in a number of African countries. After establishing a historical and international context, authors examine four cases of state collapse and six cases of state reconfiguration. Each case focuses on the relations of state structures with new social actors (or with preexisting social groups with redefined powers), including not only the classic formulations of civil society, but also religious, ethnic, and gender-based groups. A final chapter traces patterns in these cases and sketches likely scenarios for the future. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
