M Talk: Africa in the World: Capitalism, Empire, Nation-State @ M on the Bund
At the end of the Second World War, it was clear that business as usual in colonized Africa would not resume. Frederick Cooper, professor at NYU, revisits a history in which Africans were both empire-builders and the objects of colonization, and participants in the events that gave rise to global capitalism.
Cooper asks why they ultimately followed the one that led to the nation-state, a political form whose limitations and dangers were recognized by influential Africans at the time and integrates Africa’s experience into the mainstream of global affairs.
