Africa's First Democrats : Somalia's Aden A. Osman and Abdirazak H. Hussen by Abdi Ismail Samatar( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Abdi Ismail Samatar provides a clear and foundational history of Somalia at the dawn of the country’s independence when Africa’s first democrats appeared. While many African countries were dominated by authoritarian rulers when they entered the postcolonial era―and scholars have assumed this as a standard feature of political leadership on the continent―Somalia had an authentic democratic leadership. Samatar’s political biography of Aden A. Osman and Abdirazak H. Hussen breaks the stereotype of brutal African tyranny. Samatar discusses the framing of democracy in Somalia following the years of control by fascist Italy, the formation of democratic organizations during the political struggle, and the establishment of democratic foundations in the new nation."--Amazon.com

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 1980s, much debate in development studies has centered around the role of the state in the growth and transformation of East Asian economies. These debates have been less attentive then they should be to geographical factors affecting economic growth and state power. This dissertation argues for a more geographically-informed theoretical interpretation of the social basis of state power, and illustrates the interpretation through a case study of industrial transformation in one East Asian country, Thailand
