Product Description

 

Africa and Other Civilizations: Conquest and Counter-Conquest is the second volume of the Collected Essays of Ali A. Mazrui that will provide readers with a broad spectrum of Ali A. Mazrui’s scholarly writings. This second volume considers the interaction of Africa with other civilizations from historical, sociological, philosophical and political perspectives, with a special emphasis on the inextricability of conquest and counter-conquest. The essays reproduced herein provide a refreshing approach to such seminal themes as “culture,” “civilization,” “universalism,” and “modernization” as they address the complex interactions between Africa and other civilizations throughout history?including economic, political, religious, ideological and artistic interactions. Mazrui’s essays are very timely and will contribute to our understanding of current world events: particularly relevant are his reflections on the place of Africa and the “Third World” after the Cold War and in relation to an emerging international order he describes as “Global Apartheid.”
