This paper covers the independent states of tropical Africa (South of the Sahara). Its main focus is on the ex-British colonies. It attempts to deal with a variety of concepts and themes of differing degrees of complexities: these inlude notions of colonialism and imperialist penetration, the process of decolonozation, social and class formations, class and class struggle, élite, and social and political mobilization.
