ABSTRACT
One reason why there is 'always something new out of Africa' is that there are so few old, all-embracing and extensive institutions capable either of denying or of even moderating change. Africa is a most exciting continent, in part because of its potential for change.

New ideologies, new politics, new constitutions and procedures, are to be expected out of Africa. (p. 18
