African socialism and the world system: dependency, transnational corporations and international debt
MetadataShow full item record
In the little more than a quarter of a century since the end of World War II, extensive changes have significantly altered Africa's role in the world political economic system. Over forty new nations have attained political independence and embarked on differing paths of nation-building on the continent. A number characterize their approaches as 'socialist', but only a handful have begun to make the necessary institutional changes to initiate an effective transition towards socialist reconstruction of their political economies.
