Postimperialism and world politics( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Postimperialism is a theory of political and social change inspired by the explosive growth of transnational corporate enterprise during the latter 20th century. Its foundations are derived from two primary sources: political theories of the modern business corporation and class-analytical theories of society. However, the postimperialist theory of class formation is predicated on power relations, a departure from conventional class analysis that renders the theory applicable universally to countries at different stages of economic development. Postimperialist thinkers contend that the formation of a global bourgeoisie, resulting from transnational class coalescence, coincide with the evolution of institutions and public policies that are compatible with socialist as well as capitalist principles
African politics in postimperial times : the essays of Richard L. Sklar by Richard L Sklar( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in this collection attest to the fact that throughout his productive career as a scholar, Richard L. Sklar has been at the intellectual forefront of major political and social developments affecting the African continent. Spanning four decades, these essays encompass the wide range of Sklar's scholarly contributions both to African political studies and the discipline of political science. While the author's influential writings on Nigerian politics comprise a significant portion of this collection, the great diversity of African countries and regions treated herein evinces a breadth of scholarly interest best described as Pan-African Continentalism. This volume also contains Sklar's seminal essays on the subjects of class, power, socialism, modernization, dual authority, mixed government, "developmental democracy," and "postimperialism.""--Jacket

Nigeria during the Abacha Years : 1993-1998( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The autocratic regime of Sani Abacha (1993-1998) stands out as a watershed in the history of independent Nigeria. Nigeria's darkest years since the civil war resulted from his unrestrained personal rule; very close to the features associated with warlordism. Nepotism, corruption, violation of human rights, procrastination over the implementation of a democratic transition, and the exploitation of ethnic, cultural or religious identities, also resulted in the accumulation of harshly repressed frustrations. In this book, some distinguished scholars, journalists and civil society activists examine this process of democratic recession, and its institutional, sociological, federal and international ramifications. Most of the contributions were originally presented at a seminar organized by the Centre d'Etude d'Afrique Noire (CEAN) in Bordeaux
