Dr.Bongyu’s research work on African States and the African union is well known. In this monograph he discusses the Balkanization of Africa in the colonial and immediate post colonial period with an emphasis on the weak, fragile and marginalized condition of even the strongest of Sub-Saharan African states. He also describes the rise of African aid funding and the fall of most economic indicators and the atrophy of key societal elements such as farming and traditional village life. The work starts with the present situation in Black Africa and various attempts at regional and continent wide unity by 53 national entities. Next Bongyu approaches the problems of macro-level economics ,governance and attempts at unity in the face of globalization. The study ends with new players coming into the African arena—China, the Gulf States and Brazil. The efforts to salvage the continent undertaken by Africans themselves and aided by friends abroad may indeed be the next new thing to emerge from Africa. ..Ex Africa Semper Nova.
