Inalienability of Land and Citizenship in the African Context: Unity and Diversity in the Age of Globalisation
Simeon Onyewueke Eboh
Transaction Pub, 2005 - History - 229 pages
"Colonialism disrupted traditional authority over land and removed the spiritual linkage between the land and the people in exchange for simple material consideration. The colonial-received legal systems operating in Africa have no relevance to the socio-cultural make-up of the people as they lack communal sharing ethos and mechanisms for an equitable distribution of the communal wealth which are the foundations of justice, peace and harmonious co-existence. The study re-evaluates the meaning and values Africans attach to land and citizenship and their jural implications in order to provide workable compasses for the African peoples to navigate successfully through the labyrinthine jungles of globalisation."--BOOK JACKET.
