Summary
The democratic experiment in Africa has had a checkered history over the past ten years. Analysts of this process tend to focus on the political and legal space instead of including broader issues such as norms, generational change and class. Authors in this volume argue that African civil society is less likely to support democracy, they measure African democracy by the women's rights movements, unravel the mythical hope of technology and point to ideological capitulation necessary for a limited transition. Past experience from Botswana, South-Africa, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda and Madagascar will give the readers an understanding of democracy in Africa
