Author

Physical Description

Notes
  • The assumption is that a nation is a people, a group of people, or a historic concentration of people, giving a political system acceptable to the whole, that is to say, grosso modo, democratic. It is shown that this process is analogous, although greatly contrasted in detail, between Africa and Europe. The differences lie in three contrasting times of evolution which accentuate the risk of crises from contradictory sources: the building of a state, the life of ethnic groups and national ideologies. These three aspects are analysed and placed in the context of historical evolution within different areas and recent writings on this subject.
