It is rare for a scholar to revisit the scene of earlier research with a view to evaluating how that research has stood up over time. Here David E Apter does that and more. In a lengthy new introductory chapter to this classic study of bureaucratic nationalism, he reviews the efficacy of the concepts in his original study of Uganda of almost a century ago, including some, such as consociationalism', which have entered into the mainstream of comparative politics.


  • His book is refreshing for its originality, its frankness, and its realistic approach
  • it merits close study. The Times "This work is a highly sophisticated presentation representing a successful blending of accurate historical description, political insight and contemporary sociological theory. Professor Apter approaches his subject from the broad perspective of his previous work on the Gold Coast
  • as a student of comparative political institutions in Africa he has few peers. Within an over-all historical context he lays bare the intertwining forces that have shaped Buganda"s emergence into a restless mid-twentieth century Africa. The mass of data in this study makes it valuable as a reference work." Eugene P. Dvorin, American Political Science Review "A must for all libraries without the original, otherwise for specialized collections on Africa and development studies."
