Anathematized and outlawed by African nationalism early in the postcolonial period, ethnicity has now eclipsed nationalism. It has proved by far the most potent force for political mobilization. The studies in this volume provide ample evidence of this potency of ethnicity. The authors focus on ethnicity's relationship to the state and try to account for the twists and turns that mark the history of this relationship.
