Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to the examination of how Africa's engagements with the world are currently being reshaped and revalued. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order. It is clear that today's world is not the world of the 1990s and - not surprising to Africans or Africanists but perhaps to others - this also holds true when viewed from the African continent. With the end of the Cold War, the world seemed to move from a bipolar system to a unipolar world in which the neoliberal West globally imposes its laws.

Keywords: Africa; Cold War; neoliberal West
