First published in 1978, this book is intended as an introductory study to the political geography of Africa. It seeks in particular to underline and analyse the salient political and socio-economic problems and issues which have faced Africa and its various regions and states in their search for political stability and economic viability. It is the author's belief that by examining the continent's problems within a geographical and historical context readers will be enabled to gain a better understanding of their real import and make a reasonable assessment of future developments and trends. For the benefit of those who are not already familiar with the meaning and scope of political geography the book begins with an introductory section outlining the principles of the subject. In the concluding chapter the author examines the role of the Organisation of African Unity both as an instrument of political liberation and as a factor for the resolution of conflicts and the achievement of economic progress and political stability.Doveton, D.
