After three consecutive waves of unsuccessful attempts to transplant democracy in post-colonial Africa, it is necessary for those engaged in any kind of political theorizing to reflect on the path theory has taken and the path that lies ahead. This book delineates a vision that moves beyond the dominant research paradigm toward a new way of constructing a framework of analysis.
