Abstract:

This book examines the historical antecedents of Pan-Africanism as a driving force of African Unity, carefully studying its major contributors, current institutional status, and potential future growth. It analyzes the facilitative role of emerging technologies, such as high performance computing, telecommunications, and satellite remote sensing in enabling African sustainable development. Finally, the authors discuss possible ways that the vision of Pan-Africanism can be used today in Africa's efforts towards unity and sustainable development. Thierno Thiam is Associate Professor of Political Science and Chair of the Department of History and Political Science at Tuskegee University, USA. His academic and professional career spans across several major universities and institutions, including the University of Dakar, Howard University, the University of Maryland, Purdue University, and the Institute for State Effectiveness, Washington, D.C., USA. Gilbert Rochon is Adjunct Professor at the Department of Global Health Management and Policy, Tulane University, USA. He is also Co-Chair-Higher Ed. Initiative-African Renaissance and Diaspora Network (ARDN), Research Scientist at Xavier University of Louisiana, Senior Consultant at MSF Global Solutions, LLC., and formerly the 6th President of Tuskegee University, USA.
