Overview

It is rare for a scholar to revisit the scene of earlier research with a view to evaluating how that research has stood up over time. Here David E Apter does that and more. In a lengthy new introductory chapter to this classic study of bureaucratic nationalism, he reviews the efficacy of the concepts in his original study of Uganda of almost a century ago, including some, such as consociationalism', which have entered into the mainstream of comparative politics.

Table of Contents

His book is refreshing for its originality, its frankness, and its realistic approach; it merits close study. The Times

"This work is a highly sophisticated presentation representing a successful blending of accurate historical description, political insight and contemporary sociological theory. Professor Apter approaches his subject from the broad perspective of his previous work on the Gold Coast; as a student of comparative political institutions in Africa he has few peers. Within an over-all historical context he lays bare the intertwining forces that have shaped Buganda"s emergence into a restless mid-twentieth century Africa. The mass of data in this study makes it valuable as a reference work." Eugene P. Dvorin, American Political Science Review

"A must for all libraries without the original, otherwise for specialized collections on Africa and development studies." R M Fulton, Northwest Missouri State University, Choice
