Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'Guy Martin, as a distinguished Africanist scholar, has rendered an invaluable and pioneering scholarly service with a much-needed single thematic volume that constitutes a synthesis of the state of knowledge in the context of African political thought, which deserves unlimited praise.' - A.B. Assensoh, African American & African Diaspora Studies Professor Emeritus, Indiana University-Bloomington, USA

'In this excellent book, Guy Martin has conducted the most comprehensive study of African political thought, by masterfully examining the various philosophical strands. As well, he systematically probed the historical development of each ideology from antiquity to present, including the significant but under-researched contributions of indigenous African political systems. This book is a must-read for those who are interested in African political philosophy.' - George Klay Kieh, Jr., Professor of Political Science, University of West Georgia, USA

'African Political Thought is a timely encyclopedic and enriched analytical work. Its arguments are deeply rooted in African political history, cultural values, and political struggles from ancient Africanity to the time of trans-Atlantic slavery and of neo-colonialism. Its methodological uniqueness is reflected in a comprehensive analysis of the major African political icons and pluralistic generations of African intellectuals. Written from Pan-African perspectives, Guy Martin proposes a rethinking of Africa in her totality. This outstanding analytical contribution will be relevant for many years to come.' - Tukumbi Lumumba-Kasongo, Wells College and Cornell University, USA
