Africa After Independence by Godfrey Mwakikagile

This work focuses on the early years of independence and the problems African countries faced soon after the end of colonial rule.

They include poverty and underdevelopment; adoption of alien ideologies and economic and political systems; structural flaws of the modern African state and its institutions inherited at independence; nation-building, democratization, national integration, and ethno-regional rivalries among others.

The work also looks at prospects for continental unification from the perspectives of leaders such as Nkrumah and Nyerere.

As a demographic portrait, it depicts the continent as a tapestry that reflects the racial diversity and multi-ethnic composition of this vast land mass. And as a historical and political analysis, it addresses some of the most important issues in the post-colonial era.

The book includes photos from the early sixties.
