Sovereigns, Quasi Sovereigns, and Africans: Race and Self-determination in International Law

Pirmais vāks
U of Minnesota Press, 1996 - 282 lappuses
In this trenchant critique, Siba N'Zatioula Grovogui demonstrates the failure of international law to address adequately the issues surrounding African self-determination during decolonization. Challenging the view that the only requirement for decolonization is the elimination of the legal instruments that provided for direct foreign rule, Sovereigns, Quasi Sovereigns, and Africans shows that the principles recognized in international law today are not universal, but instead reflect relations of power and the historical dominance of specific European states.
