Kenya: the politics of participation and control by Henry Bienen( Book )

16 editions published between 1947 and 2015 in English and held by 1,112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kenya has been the object of much controversy among students of African politics. Some view it as one of the greatest "successes" of the post-independence period; others see it as an example of all that is wrong with African development. Henry Bienen approaches this controversy by asking whether the concept of political participation has been properly understood in the African context. His case study of political participation in Kenya discusses administration, party politics, ethnicity, and class. He suggests that in a system dominated by elites, individuals and groups exert influence primarily through patron-client networks and local administrative and party organs. Local politics is the most important arena for most people, it is argued. As long as the regime adopts policies which maximize economic growth and take account of peasant middle and small holders, and as long as individual representatives can be replaced even though no change of regime occurs, limited political participation leads to political stability. Originally published in 1977.

The military and modernization by Henry Bienen( Book )

18 editions published between 1971 and 2018 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is a growing body of work on the military in developing countries. Few studies, have explored in-depth questions concerning the social origins of offi cers and enlisted men or trace career patterns within the armed forces of the developing world. With the exception of Latin America, it has been rare for a study to assess the performance of ruling, or non-ruling, militaries for political development and modernization of their societies. Th is oversight is exactly what Henry Bienen addresses in this collection."--Provided by publisher

Oil revenues and policy choice in Nigeria by Henry Bienen( Book )

11 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An exceptionally large share of Nigeria's oil windfall was spent on expanding educational facilities and road networks while agriculture in particular received little attention. The nonoil economy was thus warped toward service-biased growth while supply inelasticity of a key consumer good raised inflation and lowered the share of oil rent ultimately consumed. This paper analyzes the political and institutional factors which shaped the Nigerian strategy for using oil windfalls. These factors include the weakness of class-based, relative to ethnic, political groups, the nature of the distributional debate in Nigeria and the perceived importance of the exit option from agriculture in the process of social mobility. Service-based expansion was not unpredictable. Neither was the strategy undertaken in opposition to popular demand
