 Description
 
Africa has never lived up to its true potential. Postcolonial legacy, cross-tribal boundaries and illiteracy provided for a mix that produced years of conflict, economic decline, corruption and mismanagement. This collection provides the factual framework towards studying the history of postcolonial Africa, but it cannot be considered a replacement for the actual course. It only provides the student with essential events and dates that may help read more in-depth analytical articles. The role of African leaders and nation fathers has been particularly prominent in the postcolonial period. Their assent to power, military coups and elections, their struggle for survival, reforms and their death make a substantial portion of this material. On one hand you will learn about great leaders such Nyerere, Kenyatta, or Mandela, on the other, you will get to know the complex and maligned personalities of Idi Amin, Joseph Kony, Foday Sankoh, Mohamed Farrah Aidid, Mobutu Sese Seko, or Jonas Savimbi. You will learn to appreciate that great African leaders have often showed checkered record of progressive reform as well as ruthless brutality. They were loved by one part of their population and hated by another. They showed untarnished love and dedication for their country, but eliminated all opposition to their rule at the same time. They often started as democrats to end up as dictators. Others came to power in a military coup to enact democratic reforms. You will study the complex record of Kwame Nkrumah, Patrice Lumumba, Robert Mugabe, Ian Smith, Yoweri Museveni, Jerry Rawlings, Daniel Moi or Milton Obote. Once you master this half-a-thousand items collection, analytical articles related to postcolonial Africa should make a more fascinating reading.
