Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of names, cities, terms and concepts with relevant to the discussion on the history of post-independent African countries is only just beginning to be written. For too long, the history of post-colonial Africa has been used as the site for analyses in political science, economics, development or whatever. It may be possible to make such analyses, if that is what is wanted, but they can only rest on the results of careful historical reconstruction. This is what this book provides, to a degree which in the author experience is virtually unprecedented. One of the great virtues of this book is that it shies away from the narrative of postindependence Zambian history which United National Independence Party (UNIP) under Kaunda attempted to impose on the country.

Keywords: African countries; economics; political science; United National Independence Party (UNIP); Zambian history
