Public Opinion, Democracy, and Market Reform in Africa

£5.99

Product description

SPECIAL SALE PRICE £5.99 from £14.99

About the book:
Based on the Afrobarometer, a survey research project, this examination of public opinion in sub-Saharan Africa reveals what ordinary Africans think about democracy and market reforms, subjects on which almost nothing is otherwise known. The authors reveal that widespread support for democracy in Africa is shallow and that Africans consequently feel trapped between state and market. Although they are learning about reform through knowledge and experience, it is assumed that few countries are likely to attain full-fledged democratic market status anytime soon.

'This is one of the most innovative, hopeful and profoundly important social science books about Africa in several decades. With a sure grasp of democratic theories, a pioneering research framework, and the broadest collaborative network ever assembled to study public opinion in Africa, Bratton, Mattes, and Gyimah-Boadi analyze what Africans think about politics and governance, and why.... They have set a new standard for research on political and economic change in Africa. And they have made a lasting contribution to the continents democratic and developmental future' Larry Diamond, Stanford University.
