In this collection of essays, one of Africa's most eminent political scientists investigates crucial problems confronting the African continent: its chronic instability and sectional conflict, the nature of class rule and the failure of the post-colonial state to deliver on the promises of independence. The relevance of Marxist theory to an understanding of Africa's social reality is explored, and a theory of national liberation, based on the ideas of Amilcar Cabral, developed.
