HIST 273 Africa Since 1945 (1)

This course focuses on key figures, events, and trends in African history during the second half of the twentieth-century.

Topics include: colonial economies and labor relations, nationalist ideologies and independence movements, military regimes and one-party states, and structural adjustment and neoliberal reform.
