Guy Arnold has specialised in African and Third World affairs for the last 40 years and is the author of books on these themes. In this text, he provides a landmark modern history of the world's most troubled and misunderstood continent. The end of the Second World War heralded the rapid end of European African empires. In 1945, only four African countries were independent; by 1963, thirty African states created the Organization of African Unity. Despite numerous problems, the 1960s were a time of optimism as Africans enjoyed their new independence. By the 1990s, however, the high hopes of the 1960s had been dashed. Dictatorships by strongmen, corruption, civil wars, genocide, widespread poverty, and the interventions and manipulations of the major world powers had all relegated Africa to the position of a Third World “basket case,” the poorest and least-developed continent on the planet
