This is a genuinely comparative study of the different trajectories and experiences of independent African states. It addresses the differential legacies of British, French, Portuguese, Belgian and Spanish colonialism as well as the unique qualities of imperial Ethiopia and Liberia. Paul Nugent analyses boundary problems, the reshaping of territorial structures and the contrasting ideological paths followed by civilian and military regimes. The book ends with a look at the interplay between structural adjustment, ethnicity, democratization and the impact of NGOs. A state-level perspective is balanced by a sensitivity to popular culture.

'This is clearly a fabulous study - perhaps the best, most incisive, and most comprehensive treatment of African history and politics that I have seen.' - Joshua Forrest, University of Vermont, USA
'This is an impressive book. Those who know little of modern African history - start here! And those who have read everything before this publication, add this to your collection.' - Bruce Baker, Democratization
'Nugent's book is easily the best single-volume history of postcolonial Africa written in the last 20 years.' - Nicolas Van De Walle, Foreign Affairs
'Writing the history of continents is difficult...Nonetheless, it is possible to provide a comprehensive single-volume view of short period of continental African history. David Nugent's Africa Since Independence deals excellently with the problem by taking a thematic approach in which the main features of African history are considered within a broadly chronological structure. Although it is a scholarly work that addresses the arguments of other authorities, it also provides a clear narrative account of African experience that is interesting to informed general readers.' - Times Higher Education Supplement
'This is comparitive history as it ought to be written: thematic, wide-ranging, scholarly and full of insights'. - Alan Cousins, History
'It is the success in narrating these complex varied historical and cultural inheritances, as well as the subtle forms of foreign intervention that have influenced events in Africa since independence, that makes this book a valued resource for students and the general reader...few will resist the urge to read it from cover to cover. - Ukoha Ukiwo, African History
Paul Nugent is Senior Lecturer in African History, University of Edinburgh.
