Kamete, Amin Y.
|City of publisher:||Uppsala|
|Abstract:||This book is one result of the project 'Liberation and Democracy in Southern Africa' (LiDeSA) run at the Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Uppsala, Sweden, between 2001 and 2006. The papers, which have been revised, were originally presented at a Session of the Research Committee 'Comparative Sociology' at the Sixteenth World Congress of Sociology held in Durban in July 2006. The theme explored is the role of opposition parties under different aspects in several East and Southern African countries and the way in which they differ in response to the sociopolitical determinants. The three papers are: The logic of ethnic politics: elite perceptions about the role of ethnicity in Kenyan and Zambian party politics by Karolina Hulterström; Of jinxes and blessings: the opposition in Zimbabwe's urban local governance by Amin Y. Kamete; and 'SWAPO is the Nation, and the Nation is SWAPO': government and opposition in a dominant party State: the case of Namibia by Henning Melber. [ASC Leiden abstract]|
