Abstract

"From Protest to Parties: Party-Building and Democratization in Africa." Adrienne LeBas. Oxford University Press. July 2013. --- Why do strong opposition party organizations emerge in some democratizing countries, while those in others remain weak or quickly fragment on ethnic lines? In this book Adrienne LeBas explores the politics of popular mobilization in the sometimes politically tumultuous countries of Zimbabwe, Kenya and Zambia, and sheds light on how the choices of political elites affect organizational development. Ciara McCorley finds that this book contributes interesting conclusions to the current literature, but would benefit from a second addition.
