Addressing the changing problems and perspectives of Africa, leading Africanists examine economic, political, and ideological trends in the sub-Saharan region since the time of independence, and assess their probable impact on the future of the subcontinent. Contributors deal with such essential topics as the influence of ideology on the evolution of African politics; the role of the military in African politics; the decline in food production and economic crises as a direct threat to the continent's independence; the problem of South Africa and the U.S. position with regard to South Africa; and the failure of the African collective security system.
