Africa since 1940 : the past of the present by Frederick Cooper( Book )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in French and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frederick Cooper's latest book on the history of decolonization and independence in Africa initiates a new textbook series: New Approaches to African History. His book will help readers understand the historical processes which have shaped Africa's current position in the world. Covering the last half-century, it bridges the divide between colonial and post-colonial history, allowing readers to see just what political independence did and did not signify. The book follows the "development question" across time, seeing how first colonial regimes and then African governments sought to transform African societies in their own ways. Readers will see how men and women, peasants and workers, religious leaders and local leaders found space within the crevices of state power to refashion the way they lived, worked, and interacted with each other. And they will see that the effort to turn colonial territories into independent nation-states was only one of the ways in which radical political and social movements imagined their future and how deeply the claims of such movements continued to challenge states after independence. By looking at the post-war era as a whole, one can begin to understand the succession of crises that colonial and post-colonial states faced without getting into a sterile debate over whether a colonial "legacy" or the failings of African governments are the cause of Africa's current situation."--Provided by publisher

Quoi de neuf ? du rôle des techniques dans l'histoire globale by David Edgerton( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Voici un essai capital sur les rapports entre technique et société. Cette histoire globale de la technologie moderne prend le contre-pied du récit habituel centré sur les inventions de quelques individus géniaux pour mettre au premier plan l'analyse des usages collectifs. David Edgerton est ainsi amené à réévaluer profondément le rôle des technologies dans la société. Bien au-delà de la liste usuelle des innovations modernes couramment tenues pour avoir transformé notre existence - la pilule, l'informatique, la bombe atomique, l'aviation -, il faut prendre en compte une grande variété de technologies moins visibles mais non moins importantes, venant de diverses parties du monde...

Citizenship between empire and nation : remaking France and French Africa, 1945-1960 by Frederick Cooper( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the French public debates its present diversity and its colonial past, few remember that between 1946 and 1960 the inhabitants of French colonies possessed the rights of French citizens. Moreover, they did not have to conform to the French civil code that regulated marriage and inheritance. One could, in principle, be a citizen and different too. Citizenship between Empire and Nation examines momentous changes in notions of citizenship, sovereignty, nation, state, and empire in a time of acute uncertainty about the future of a world that had earlier been divided into colonial empires. Frederick Cooper explains how African political leaders at the end of World War II strove to abolish the entrenched distinction between colonial "subject" and "citizen." They then used their new status to claim social, economic, and political equality with other French citizens, in the face of resistance from defenders of a colonial order. Africans balanced their quest for equality with a desire to express an African political personality. They hoped to combine a degree of autonomy with participation in a larger, Franco-African ensemble. French leaders, trying to hold on to a large French polity, debated how much autonomy and how much equality they could concede. Both sides looked to versions of federalism as alternatives to empire and the nation-state. The French government had to confront the high costs of an empire of citizens, while Africans could not agree with French leaders or among themselves on how to balance their contradictory imperatives. Cooper shows how both France and its former colonies backed into more "national" conceptions of the state than either had sought
