About this product
- DescriptionIn this critique, Siba N'Zatioula Grovogui demonstrates the failure of international law to address adequately the issues surrounding African self-determination during decolonization. Challenging the view that the only requirement for decolonization is the elimination of the legal instruments that provided for direct foreign rule, Sovereigns, quasi sovereigns, and Africans probes the universal claims of international law, Grovogui begins by documenting the creation of the image of Africa in European popular culture, examining its construction by conquerors and explorers, scientists and social scientists, and the Catholic Church. Using the name of Mamibia to illuminate the general context of Africa, he demonstrates that the principles and rules recognized in international law today are t universal, but instead reflect relations of power and the historical dominance of specific European states. Grovogui blends critical legal theory, historical research, political ecomy, and cultural studies with kwledge of contemporary Africa.
