In this prizewinning book, a distinguished specialist and scholar of African affairs discusses the history of colonisation in Africa. Proposing a new conception of the state, Crawford Young considers a wide range of African countries and compares them to other areas of the once-colonised world, and he argues that the current crisis in African development can be traced directly to European colonial rule.
