Education, Democracy and Political Development in Africa
Author Text to Follow
For most of the post-independence period African states
have been ruled by one-party and military regimes. Writers on political
development theory came to see this as inevitable. Pressures both
from within Africa itself and from outside, however, have rekindled
debates about democracy in the African context and have led to a
whole raft of multi-party elections.
This book aims to provide a political analysis of education in Africa within the context of democratization.
