The Compulsion to do the Right Thing: Development Knowledge and its Limits more. In tone with ECASthis volume proposes that the experiences appearing in Africa question dominant paradigms in terms of political practice and academic reflection and thus offer a clear challenge to the academic community. The volume offers clues to answer questions such as: What is the impact of the current processes of nacamo for African countries and African citizens? How should African Studies be engaged to gauge African dynamics, both at a local and global level?


What interdisciplinary means and tools should be brought in to produce an epistemologically relevant view or narrative of the issues under analysis? African Eliio in a Multipolar World. Memories of war in Mozambique more. Minneapolis MN and London: This book sets out to draw on globalization and post-colonial studies in analysing Lusophone Africa. There is much about these countries that would appear to defeat There is much about these countries that would appear to defeat the purpose of looking at them as a coherent conceptual entity.

To begin with, nature has not been fair to all of them. Moreover, their post-colonial political fortunes are disparate.

These different political paths in the aftermath of independence do not seem to suggest any obvious link back to their common colonial past that would help account for the differences. The matrix purportedly documents a particular experience of the global. The book is quite successful in conveying a sense of the uniqueness of this experience.

Its emphasis on cultural media and, in particular, on the vibrant scenes of music, cinema and literature are a welcome reminder of the diversity that is constitutive of Africa. The emphasis also corrects a neglect that Portuguese-speaking African countries have suffered from as they jockey for attention in the shadow of their more visible Francophone and Anglophone counterparts.

While Fernando Arenas takes care to draw attention to the role of African countries in shaping eilsio nature of this commitment, he does not appear to deny the fact that Brazil and Portugal have set the intellectual terms of this matrix.

There is, therefore, a sense in which whatever African countries can contribute in setting up the matrix seems to have been determined by others beforehand. In the book the global is loosely defined as the interconnected nature of relations among countries in the world. This obtains under the influence of the forces set free by the expansion of capital and its search for the regulation and ordering of societies in ways that secure its reproduction. Whatever the exact nature of the global may be, the author suggests that the process through which it constituted itself over time yielded structural and ideological conditions that mwcamo enable newly independent countries to live up to the promise of nationalist politics.


The post-colonial, in its turn, is defined as a critical engagement with the history that made the imaginaries underlying nation building in these countries possible. Since, however, the post-independence trajectory of most African countries has been one of crisis, disasters and wars, coupled with the corruption of African political elites and their indifference to the suffering of their fellow-countrymen, Fernando Arenas seems to suggest that post-colonialism as a critical perspective has increasingly come to amount to a strained justification of the failure of African countries to join the rest of the world in enjoying the benefits of a life in freedom and prosperity.

There is something appealing about this argument, as it elosio readers to engage seriously with Africa on its own terms. But then again, this might be an effect of the underlying definitions of macamk global and the post-colonial.

While the former draws attention to interconnectedness without any particular emphasis on the extent to which such structures, brought about by colonial rule and capitalism, largely determined the range of local responses to them, the latter gives pride of place to the temporal dimension and fails, thereby, to pay adequate attention to the extent to Remember me on this computer.
