Histoire, Politique et gouvernement
Audio avec voix humaine
When the decolonization of European empires in Africa began 50 years ago, the process was greeted with immense hope for the future. Blessed with bountiful natural resources and led by Western-educated elites, the continent seemed to have a realistic chance… to create stable, prosperous, democratic societies. Why did it all go wrong? The arrogance and ignorance of European masters planted the seeds of many of Africa's current problems, but Meredith refuses to let Africans off the hook for the endemic violence, corruption, and political repression that plagues so many African states. Some descriptions of violence. 2005.
