Politics, Economy and Society South of the Sahara in 2023
The Africa Yearbook covers major domestic political developments, the foreign policy and socio-economic trends in sub-Sahara Africa – all related to developments in one calendar year. The Yearbook contains articles on all sub-Saharan states, each of the four sub-regions (West, Central, Eastern, Southern Africa) focusing on major cross-border developments and sub-regional organizations as well as one article on continental developments and one on African-European relations. While the articles have thorough academic quality, the Yearbook is mainly oriented to the requirements of a large range of target groups: students, politicians, diplomats, administrators, journalists, teachers, practitioners in the field of development aid as well as business people.

What are key causes and effects of structural inequality across many social, economic, and psychological situations of life? Power-dependence/exchange theory and relevant data are used in this book to help answer this complicated question. Crucial dimensions of interpersonal behavior, social symbolic communication, and individual social psychology are explored in the context of exchange network and group dynamics. Developed across the past 60 years, the research program covered here provides a distinctive perspective on “social exchange theory,” bringing to bear data produced through use of various research methods: qualitative ethnography, controlled laboratory experiment, vignette experiment, social sample survey, and psycholinguistic analysis.

This is the fourth edition of the Yearbook on the African Union (YBAU). The YBAU is first and foremost an academic project that provides an in-depth evaluation and analysis of the institution, its processes, and its engagements. Despite the increased agency in recent years of the African Union in general, and the AU Commission in particular, little is known – outside expert policy or niche academic circles – about the Union’s activities. This is the gap the Yearbook on the African Union wants to systematically address. It seeks to be a reference point for in-depth research, evidence-based policy-making and decision-making.

Arguments for Transformative Left Politics in South Africa
Author:
South Africa was the hope of the world. It had an impressive and rich tradition of left politics. At the heart of post-apartheid democracy-making was a revolutionary nationalist ANC, the oldest Communist Party in Africa, the SACP, and one of the most militant labour union federations in the world, COSATU. Yet, South Africa is at a crossroads and many are deeply concerned about its future. This book explains through a political economy/ecology analysis why and how the degeneration of national liberation politics has happened, while making praxis-centered arguments for a new transformative left politics.
