Interest in China and Africa is growing exponentially. Taking a step back from the `events-driven' reactions characterizing much coverage, this timely book reflects more deeply on questions concerning how this subject has been, is being and can be studied. It offers a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary and authoritative contribution to Africa-China studies. Its diverse chapters explore key current research themes and debates, such as agency, media, race, ivory, development or security, using a variety of case studies from Benin, Kenya and Tanzania, to Angola, Mozambique and Mauritius. Looking back, it explores the evolution of studies about Africa and China. Looking forward, it explores alternative, future possibilities for a complex and constantly evolving subject. Showcasing a range of perspectives by leading and emerging scholars, New Directions in Africa-China Studies is an essential resource for students and scholars of Africa and China relations.

"La mise en écriture d'un pan substantiel du patrimoine historique des Fang de l'Afrique centrale constitue le premier objectif de ce manuel. Car le Congrès de Mitzic est un texte patrimonial du peuple fang, ayant en son sein une philosophie de vie telle que nos ancêtres la concevaient autrefois. La nécessité d'améliorer leurs conditions de vie, de vivre leurs traditions dans la modernité, de lutter contre l'acculturation a, entre autres raisons, permis la tenue dudit Congrès. Mitzic, ville ayant abrité le Congrès, reste dans les mémoires collectives un lieu non seulement symbolique, mais aussi un patrimoine historique, car elle abrita la première base militaire française du Nord-Gabon ayant permis de repousser les Allemands durant les deux Guerres mondiales. Les vestiges de ces différents affrontements y sont encore visibles de nos jours. Cette ville est également considérée comme le centre du Pays Fang. Le Congrès International Fang (C.I.F) de Mitzic est l'histoire de tous les Fang de l'Afrique centrale, ils doivent la connaître et la transmettre à leur progéniture."--Page 4 of cover.

  • Salut ô terre d'espérance ! -- Pays de l'hospitalité -- La faute, serait-elle toujours imputée à l'autre -- De la responsabilité de l'État de Côte d'Ivoire -- De l'hospitalité à l'intérieur du même pays des différents peuples -- Tes légions remplies de vaillance ont relevé ta dignité -- Tes fils chère côte d'ivoire, fiers artisans de grandeur -- Tous rassembles pour ta gloire, te bâtiront dans le bonheur -- Les raisons de la crise se trouvent certainement ailleurs -- Fiers ivoiriens le pays nous appelle -- La Sécurité -- La santé : La santé est la plus précieuse des richesses -- L'éducation et la formation -- Les infrastructures -- La redevance électricité rurale -- Le ramassage des ordures ménagères -- La redevance RTI -- Le social -- L'économie et les finances -- Si nous avons dans la paix ramené la liberté... -- Notre devoir sera d'être un modèle -- La fainéantise et le gain facile -- L'envie et le luxe -- De l'espérance promise a l'humanité -- En forgeant unis dans la foi nouvelle la patrie de la vraie fraternité.
"L'échec du deuxième tour de la présidentielle du 28 novembre 2010 en Côte d'Ivoire entre Laurent Gbagbo et Alassane Ouattara, fit éclater une grave crise aux conséquences désastreuses au sein de la population ivoirienne : pertes en vies humaines, dégâts matériels considérables, exil, haine, division, etc. Depuis le 11 avril 2011, la capture de l'ex-Président et son emprisonnement à La Haye, le fossé s'est davantage accru entre les filles et les fils du même pays. Que faut-il pour ramener la paix et la réconciliation seules possibilités de résolution de la crise ? Entre plusieurs recherches de solutions, une relecture de notre hymne national nous permet, par une catharsis individuelle et collective, de passer d'une situation de pourriture sociétale à une vie commune qui rendrait caduque cette forfaiture."--Page 4 of cover.

This book presents relevant and timely endogenous procedures for addressing the challenge of transforming ideas into sustainable opportunities in Africa. It explores how Africa could be understood in the context of emerging global realities, providing alternative frameworks that will not just be participatory in conception and practice, but equally show a contextual workability for the varying aspects of the developmental enterprise in Africa. Despite having alternative and less cumbersome sources of funding, with commendable economic growth indices, and several economies among the fastest growing globally, African countries have been unable to transmute related opportunities into sustainable human development outcomes for majority of its citizenry. Over four rich sections the authors cover subjects ranging from environment and natural resource management, to governance, economy and sustainable development. The book continues with a section on Education and Human Development and a case study in transnationalism. The final section discusses crime, conflict and regional dynamics, including highly disputed topics such as forced migration and sex trade. This indispensable resource will be of great use to students and researches globally in fields such as sociology, anthropology, environmental studies, politics and economics with a focus on contemporary Africa, as well as to policy planners and human rights activists invested in the future development of Africa.

This book examines the causes, course and consequences of warfare in twentieth century Africa, a period which spanned colonial rebellions, both World Wars, and the decolonization process. Timothy Stapleton contextualizes the essential debates and controversies surrounding African conflict in the twentieth century while providing insightful introductions to such conflicts as: African rebellions against colonial regimes in the early twentieth century, including the rebellion and infamous genocide of the Herero and Nama people in present-day Namibia; The African fronts of World War I and World War II, and the involvement of colonized African peoples in these global conflicts; Conflict surrounding the widespread decolonization of Africa in the 1950s and 1960s; Rebellion and civil war in Africa during the Cold War, when American and Soviet elements often intervened in efforts to turn African battlegrounds into Cold War proxy conflicts; The Second Congo Civil War, which is arguably the bloodiest conflict in any region since World War II; Supported by a glossary, a who's who of key figures, a timeline of major events, a rich bibliography, and a set of documents which highlight the themes of the book, Africa: War and Conflict in the Twentieth Century is the best available resource for students and scholars seeking an introduction to violent conflict in recent African history.
