9781780329970: Africa Uprising: Popular Protest and Political Change

From Egypt to South Africa, Nigeria to Ethiopia, a new force for political change is emerging across Africa: popular protest. Widespread urban uprisings by youth, the unemployed, trade unions, activists, writers, artists, and religious groups are challenging injustice and inequality. What is driving this new wave of protest? Is it the key to substantive political change? Drawing on interviews and in-depth analysis, Adam Branch and Zachariah Mampilly offer a penetrating assessment of contemporary African protests, situating the current popular activism within its historical and regional contexts.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

African politics has long been characterized as driven by the engine of violence. But today, violence is being overtaken by a new force: popular protest. Cities throughout the continent, from Tunisia and Egypt, to Uganda and Sudan, to Nigeria and Senegal, have seen uprisings by youth and unemployed, as well as organized labour, civil society activists, writers and artists, and religious groups. What is driving this new wave of popular protest in Africa?

Drawing on interviews with activists in a number of countries, Adam Branch and Zachariah Mampilly offer a penetrating assessment of contemporary African protests, situating the current popular activism within its broader historical and continental context. Melding analyses of Africa's incorporation into the global economy, the failure of African governments to truly democratize, the behaviour of opposition forces both formal and informal, and the role of African popular culture, the authors provide essential insight into understanding African politics at today's key juncture.

Revue de presse :

'Why, after two decades of multiparty rule in Africa, do political protests persist? This accessible account of popular demands for an end to poverty challenges conventional narratives about democratization, economic development and a rising middle class. The authors reveal the Arab awakening of 2011 as part of an ongoing history of urban mass movements elsewhere on the African continent. Recommended.' --Michael Bratton, University Distinguished Professor of Political Science and African Studies, Michigan State University

'Increasingly interconnected and better informed than ever, Africa's peoples are more and more ready to go onto the streets in defence of their rights… Branch and Mampilly skillfully show how African politics is changing and how the collective agency of the ordinary citizen is something that will progressively shape political culture and practice across the continent. A luta continua!' --Professor Ian Taylor, University of St Andrews
