Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0253317037, Hardcover)

"... a truly authoritative source." —Foreign Affairs

"... a valuable book for policy makers, multinational corporations, international organizations, and scholars who are interested in state formation in post-colonial Africa." —African Studies Review

Focusing on what the Zairian state is and does, Schatzberg examines how scarcity and insecurity have become twin motors of a dialectic of oppression, resulting in coercion, corruption, exploitation, and fear.
