Abstract: 

This book explores a provocative and original thesis about African politics, with the vigour and rigour that readers of Professor Mamadani's earlier work will expect. Anyone who cares to understand the state in contemporary Africa anyone who wants to understand the current situation on the continent at all would do well to read this new book, whether you agree or disagree, this is a book to learn from.
