Local Perspectives on Globalisation

The African Case

edited by Joseph Sebboja, J.V. Mwapachu

These essays review Africa's economic perfomance over the last two decades from a contemporary historical perspective and also the literature. They argue that the problem in East Africa is the lack of integration into a world economy and culture; and simultaneously, the African way of life developing as a hybrid of ideas, values and behaviour which erodes independent/national identities and political and economic life. Coping mechanisms/agents of resistance are under- researched, but will include the national institutions , universities, and the state itself, in promoting the interests of citizens in the globalisation process. The contributors include Professor Luhanga, and Professor Issa Shivji, form the University of Dar es Salaam.
