African Arguments is a series of short books about Africa today. Aimed at the growing number of students and general readers who want to know more about the continent, these books intend to highlight many of the longer-term strategic as well as immediate political issues confronting the African continent.
They get to the heart of why Africa is the way it is and how it is changing. The books are scholarly but engaged, substantive as well as topical.
