"Clear and lucid... Offers a promising design for careful comparative exploration of a core issue confronting contemporary Africa-the definition of citizenship as a legal and moral issue in a political environment where in most states ethnic attachment coexists with national identity." - M. Crawford Young, University of Wisconsin, Madison "By interrogating theories of citizenship and by looking at the citizenship question in Africa within a historical and comparative perspective, Edmond J. Keller enhances the debate on citizenship and democratization in political science in general, and with respect to African politics in particular." - Georges Nzongola-Ntalaja, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
