Reviews of previous editions '[A] very good book. It is easy to see why previous editions gained such favourable reviews from this revised, expanded and updated edition... The organisation of the material is thematic and methodical. The style is easy to read, the arguments are cogent and balanced, the judgements are well modulated and of course, the chapters are packed with information, most notably about domestic political development.' - Peter Burnell, Democratization '...a wonderfully comprehensive yet succinct textbook on African politics.' Barry Munslow, Third World Quarterly '[W]ritten with an economy of language and a breadth of knowledge rarely found in political science writings... Tordoff's interpretations will be respected by scholars from diverse perspectives.' - Raymond F. Hopkins, International Journal of African Historical Studies
