The Journal of Modern African Studies (J MOD AFR STUD )

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Journal description

The Journal of Modern African Studies offers a quarterly survey of developments in modern African politics and society. Its main emphasis is on current issues in African politics economies societies and international relations. It is intended not only for students and academic specialists but also for general readers and practitioners with a concern for modern Africa living and working both inside and outside the continent. Editorial policy avoids commitment to any political viewpoint or ideology but aims at a fair examination of controversial issues in order to promote a deeper understanding of what is happening in Africa today. The journal also includes an invaluable book review section. Subscriptions for 1999 will include a free index.
