In this book, leading African and Caribbean scholars examine the forms of popular alliance being forged, the demands for 'a second independence', and what they may presage for the future of the Continent. Theoretical questions concerning the nature of the state in Africa - the context of local class formations and the global pressures of capitalism - are explored in essays by Harry Goulbourne, Abdelali Doumou, and Samir Amin.
