Review

Clear and lucid.... Offers a promising design for careful comparative exploration of a core issue confronting contemporary Africa--the definition of citizenship as a legal and moral issue in a political environment where in most states ethnic attachment coexists with national identity.--M. Crawford Young, University of Wisconsin, Madison

By interrogating theories of citizenship and by looking at the citizenship question in Africa within a historical and comparative perspective, Edmond J. Keller enhances the debate on citizenship and democratization in political science in general, and with respect to African politics in particular.--Georges Nzongola-Ntalaja, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

M. Crawford Young, University of Wisconsin, Madison"

"Most certainly, Identity, Citizenship, and Political Conflict in Africa is a useful publication, which contributes to the disciplines of African studies, history, and politics and should benefit students, general readers, and scholars with interdisciplinary academic interests." Africa Today"

"This book would certainly be useful in graduate seminars on African politics, African history or ethnic politics. It is written in a clear, straightforward style that also makes it appropriate for use in advanced undergraduate classes. Keller also offers insights for policymakers and development practitioners who
continue to grapple with the real-world consequences of citizenship conflicts." Journal of Modern African Studies"

"Keller has written an impressive and path-breaking book in African politics that can be useful by upper-level undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in African studies." African Conflict and Peacebuilding Review"

"Altogether, this book offers a fine survey of the essential question of citizenship in Africa, one that will be of particular value to those without prior exposure to the scholarship on the topic. It is also a fitting testimony to a rich academic career." Perspectives on Politics"

"Keller shows a strong understanding of the political dynamics at play in the discourse around identity and citizenship in Africa. He does not declare a one-size-fit-all attitude in his analysis of the various countries used as case studies. By consciously declaring that there is no one way to read civil conflict in modern Africa, he makes the book an obvious work in progress. This is welcomed given the complex nature of various African nation states. I find the book to be incisive in analysis and critical to the issues of identity and citizenship in Africa. It potentially forms a significant text for scholars and students of African conflict studies. For ordinary readers, the work is engaging and detailed with current information about the situation in many African countries." African Studies Quarterly"
