Introduction - transitions and continuities - the question of analysis. Part 1 The informalization of politics: whither the state?; the illusions of civil society; recycled elites. Part 2 The re-traditionalization of society: of masks and men - the question of identity; the use and abuse of the irrational - witchcraft and religion; warlords bosses and thugs - the profits of violence. Part 3 The productivity of economic "failure": the moral economy of corruption; the bounties of dependence; what if Africa refused to develop?. Conclusion - a new paradigm - the political instrumentalization of disorder.
