Desperate poverty is perhaps the greatest challenge facing Africa. Over the past 30 years, while the rest of the world has enjoyed unprecedented economic growth and prosperity, African countries have grown poorer. Today, more than 40 percent of the people living in sub-Saharan Africa subsist on less than $1 a day. This book explains the causes of Africas economic stagnation and discusses the many ways in which grinding poverty contributes to a reduced quality of life for Africans. The book also explores methods that current leaders and international organizations are using to help reduce poverty in Africa.

Traditional Institutions and Public Administration in Democratic Africa tackles the most pressing contemporary administrative issues of Africa. The first chapter opens with a thorough discussion on neo-colonialism in Africa. It questions the authenticity of African democracy as it points out the presence of groups and individuals who exploit African resources to their advantage. The chains of colonialism have perpetually defeated democracy in Africa and the former oppressors continue to financially and politically control their former colonies. The authors probe into the traditional institutions as well as the functions of the government to explain the political status quo of Africa. It emphasizes the negative impact of adhering to democratic structures that impair the positive practices and values of the traditional African administrative culture. An eye-opener, Traditional Institutions and Public Administration in Democratic Africa boldly exposes revolutionary views that challenge and defy democracy in Africa

Marry Me in Africa is an invitation to discuss approaches and processes in African marriage ritual. As one crucial institution in African culture, marriage in its traditional African definition has helped many of the continent’s cultures maintain a sense of community and identity. This book invites especially students and researchers into exchanges on some African marriage traditions and their roles in African societies. It concerns those aspects that fascinate me and many other Africans that we believe will interest people in the New World, particularly the Caribbean. Researchers of the African Diaspora might want to use some of the marriage practices for reconstructing models for analysis and interpretation of the formation and transformation of the African heritage in the Diaspora. Marry Me in Africa is particularly useful for scholars not familiar with the different cultural practices among African societies, their sources of identity and diversity, and the implications of these for understanding African social systems. This book will be a useful companion for other scholars who know about some of the cultural practices but are unable to identify exactly their relationship to specific ethnic groups, traditional concepts, social, political, economic, technological, and other practices that have constituted the patterns of cultural behavior among African societies through marriage. Individual or local cultural traditions and practices are presented within the context of the general African cultural heritage, leading to cross-cultural comparison and generalizations. The convergence of traditional marriage patterns and continuities in specific aspects of traditional values and behavior of various societies are examined over the common-ground sense of community among Africans that may not be the same today as in the past. For this reason this book takes the liberty to discuss present manifestations of a transformed past in the present.

Afrikanische Literatur - eine wissenschaftliche Disziplin? Umfasst sie nur die Mythen und Märchen dieses für viele immer noch "schwarzen" Kontinents? Dieser Band zeigt die Vielfältigkeit und Geschichte eines Faches auf, das lange nur als Anhängsel an die Linguistik, Ethnologie, Anglistik oder Romanistik existierte. Mittlerweile ist die Lehre der afrikanischen Literaturen in englischer, französischer und in den indigenen afrikanischen Sprachen an einigen deutschsprachigen Universitäten als eigenes Fach etabliert, das viele Bezüge zu anderen Kulturwissenschaften aufweist. Es ist ein Fach, das zu einem Umdenken über Afrika, seine Menschen und Kulturen herausfordert. Afrikanische Literatur, so die Herausgeberin, sollte als eigene künstlerische Ausdrucksform betrachtet werden, die so unpolitisch, verrückt surreal und fantastisch sein "darf", wie andere Literaturen der Welt es auch sein können. In den hier versammelten Aufsätzen umreißen Spezialisten verschiedenster Fachrichtungen, wie sich die wissenschaftliche Beschäftigung mit afrikanischer Literatur entfaltet und welche diversen Inhalte sie zum Gegenstand hat. Es wird dabei sowohl auf die Entstehung der Afrikanistik als Kolonialwissenschaft als auch auf die unterschiedliche Entwicklung des Faches in Ost- und Westdeutschland sowie in Österreich eingegangen. Bei den Beiträgen des Bandes handelt es sich um Polemiken, Wissenschaftsbiographien, Forschungsartikel oder wissenschaftliche Standortbestimmungen. Trotz unterschiedlicher Herangehensweise ist allen Autorinnen und Autoren gemeinsam, dass sie sich über übliche Demarkierungen hinwegsetzen und der Herausforderung einer neuen Disziplin stellen.

'The big, era-defining questions and, at last, the subtle, tenable answers, teased out without clich or compromise. A vital volume at a critical moment.' Dr Augustus Casely-Hayford, Director, Africa '05 'This book dispels the myth of a uniformly hopeless, hungry continent. It shows just howextraordinarily diverse Africa isand how much ithas changed in the last 20 years.Full of fresh thinking onproblems that face Africa and new African approaches to development.' Richard Dowden, Director, Royal African Society This ground-breaking book, with a foreword by former President of Ireland (19901997) and UN Human Rights Commissioner (19972002) Mary Robinson, uniquely distils the complex issues surrounding Africa at the beginning of the 21st century. African and Western scholars provide a fascinating 'map' for the reader to navigate between issues such as urban and rural livelihoods, the potential of fresh water fishing, health, the HIV/AIDS crisis, conflict and efforts at peacemaking. Also included are critical assessments of Africa's role in the global economy, the growth of regional economic cooperation within Africa, the influence of ethnicity on the continent's politics, the evolution of its political institutions, and the impact of Africa's legal systems on its development. A substantial introductory essay by the editors measures the distance Africa has travelled and the lessons it has learned since Africa in Crisis, the classic Earthscan book, was published in 1985. Ben Wisner is visiting research fellow at DESTIN, London School of Economics and at Benfield Hazard Research Centre, University College London, and visiting professor of environmental studies, Oberlin College, USA. Camilla Toulmin is Director of the International Institute for Environment and Development. Rutendo Chitiga is a freelance writer and editor, and has a postgraduate degree in environment and development.
