Routledge Handbook of African Politics

Front Cover of the Routledge Handbook of African Politics

Faculty and former students at the African Studies Centre have worked together to produce a major state-of-the-art publication, the Routledge Handbook of African Politics.

The Handbook is a comprehensive summary of the key debates in African politics and features over 30 chapters written by the leading names in the field. Dr Nic Cheeseman and Prof David Anderson (now at Warwick) edited the volume together with former African Studies MSc student Andrea Scheibler, now a final year DPhil. Two other former MSc students also made a major contribution: Martin Williams authored a chapter, while Zoe Marks was Senior Editorial Assistant.

Andrea Scheibler has written an overview of the Handbook, which can be found here.

To order a discounted copy of the Handbook, please take a look at this flyer. The book can also be purchased on Amazon.

The editors would also like to invite you to the launch of this Handbook, to be held on Monday 20th May following the African History & Politics Seminar by Jeremy Seekings - who also contributed to the Handbook - at the Oxford Department of International Development, 3 Mansfield Road, OX1 3TB.
