Product Description

This second volume of The Collected Works of Ali A. Mazrui will provide readers with a broad spectrum of Ali A. Mazui's scholarly writings. With a special emphasis on the inextricability of conquest and counter-conquest, it considers Africa's interaction with other civilizations from historical, sociological, philosophical and political perspectives. By engaging a refreshing approach to such seminal themes as "culture,' "civilization," "universalism" and "modernization," these essays address the complex economic, religious, ideological, and artistic interactions between Africa and other civilizations throughout history. Timely and illuminating, this volume contributes to our understanding of current world events, especially in relation to Africa and the "Third World" after the Cold War and the emerging international order Mazrui calls "Global Apartheid."
