  • Descrição: (ProQuest: ... denotes non-US-ASCII text omitted.) Reviews of Books The fiftieth anniversary of independence celebrated in many countries in 2010 led to a spate of publications that attempted to draw up a balance sheet on the significance of the transition that operated in or around 'Africa's Year' - 1960. Treatment of the significance of the onset of the independence era is rather uneven, depending, amongst other things, on the field of human activity through which the several authors were asked to pursue this meta question. The best chapters are by Thomas Bierschenk, who presents a very subtle analysis of the complexities of African bureaucracies, based on years of anthropological research; Paul Nugent, who interestingly ponders the idea of national identity through food and drink culture; and Carola Lentz, who analyses the different ways that African states celebrated their fiftieth anniversary of independence, an original contribution based on the work of doctoral students.
