• The Destruction of Africa: Travel, History, Politics, Economics, Foreign Aid, and Religion (1990)

    Today, Africa contains 54 sovereign countries, most of which have borders that were drawn during the era of European colonialism. Since colonialism, African states have frequently been hampered by instability, corruption, violence, and authoritarianism. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0006378560/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0006378560&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=937f8dd78bbf1096a1c0f921001dfd6f The vast majority of African states are republics that operate under some form of the presidential system of rule. However, few of them have been able to sustain democratic governments on a permanent basis, and many have instead cycled through a series of coups, producing military dictatorships. Great instability was mainly the result of margina...

Today, Africa contains 54 sovereign countries, most of which have borders that were drawn during the era of European colonialism. Since colonialism, African states have frequently been hampered by instability, corruption, violence, and authoritarianism. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0006378560/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0006378560&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=937f8dd78bbf1096a1c0f921001dfd6f The vast majority of African states are republics that operate under some form of the presidential system of rule. However, few of them have been able to sustain democratic governments on a permanent basis, and many have instead cycled through a series of coups, producing military dictatorships. Great instability was mainly the result of marginalization of ethnic groups, and graft under these leaders. For political gain, many leaders fanned ethnic conflicts, some of which had been exacerbated, or even created, by colonial rule. In many countries, the military was perceived as being the only group that could effectively maintain order, and it ruled many nations in Africa during the 1970s and early 1980s. During the period from the early 1960s to the late 1980s, Africa had more than 70 coups and 13 presidential assassinations. Border and territorial disputes were also common, with the European-imposed borders of many nations being widely contested through armed conflicts. Cold War conflicts between the United States and the Soviet Union, as well as the policies of the International Monetary Fund, also played a role in instability. When a country became independent for the first time, it was often expected to align with one of the two superpowers. Many countries in Northern Africa received Soviet military aid, while many in Central and Southern Africa were supported by the United States, France or both. The 1970s saw an escalation, as newly independent Angola and Mozambique aligned themselves with the Soviet Union, and the West and South Africa sought to contain Soviet influence by funding insurgency movements. There was a major famine in Ethiopia, when hundreds of thousands of people starved. Some claimed that Marxist/Soviet policies made the situation worse. The most devastating military conflict in modern independent Africa has been the Second Congo War; this conflict and its aftermath has killed an estimated 5.5 million people. Since 2003 there has been an ongoing conflict in Darfur which has become a humanitarian disaster. Another notable tragic event is the 1994 Rwandan Genocide in which an estimated 800 000 people were murdered. AIDS in post-colonial Africa has also been a prevalent issue. In the 21st century, however, the number of armed conflicts in Africa has steadily declined. For instance, the civil war in Angola came to an end in 2002 after nearly 30 years. This has coincided with many countries abandoning communist style command economies and opening up for market reforms. The improved stability and economic reforms have led to a great increase in foreign investment into many African nations, mainly from China, which has spurred quick economic growth in many countries, seemingly ending decades of stagnation and decline. Several African economies are among the world's fasted growing as of 2011. A significant part of this growth can also be attributed to the facilitated diffusion of information technologies and specifically the mobile telephone. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Africa

These women leaders share their experiences and challenges running for office, their ambitions, their role models and their vision for a future of Africa with equal representation. All of those featured in Women Rising are trailblazers; women who have taken up the mantle and paved the way for others to follow suit. Is one born or made a leader? What are the lessons that can be learnt from those who have come before? What are the characteristics that lead to success in leadership? These are explored in Women Rising. The documentary was commissioned jointly by FEMNET and UNDP and produced by InCA as part of a series on Women in Development in Africa. ©Copyright, 2013
