Africa Fifty Years after the Founding of the OAU

edited by Mammo Muchie, Vusi Gumede, Phindile Lukhele-Olorunju , Hailemichael Teshome Demissie

The various issues that animate Africa’s stand in the global political, socioeconomic, cultural and technological arenas are outlined. The chapters critically examine and evaluate the burning questions and challenges with which Africa is grappling. The study is one of the vital texts for understanding how Africa will manage to navigate the tumultuous waters of globalisation as she has just recently emerged out of the horrors of slavery, colonialism, apartheid, neo-colonialism and genocide, and is still wrestling with unceasing conflicts, popular unrest, neo-imperialism, coloniality and mushrooming insurgency. The chapters provide a much-needed insight into the issue of whether Africa has achieved genuine and meaningful independence after 50 years of the founding of the OAU and whether the small steps taken towards unity are worth celebrating. The contributors highlight these and allied issues with a view to capturing more public attention in order to stimulate debate and usher in a new phase in the quest for African Unity and Renaissance. The contributors are distinguished authors and established and emerging scholars in their own domains. While a majority of the contributors are from the continent, distinguished scholars from around the globe have joined their African fellows in dealing with the relevant issues regarding Africa’s place in an ever changing world.
