Offering a powerful and probing critique of the myths, meanings, promises and perils of globalisation, post-colonialism and other currently popular discourses, this book challenges misrepresentations and misappropriations of Africa in academic texts and in the media and reaffirms the importance of progressive nationalism, Pan-Africanism and internationalism for Africa's reconstruction.
