Religion and Politics in East Africa: The Period since Independence

Synopsis

This volume describes attempts by governments to manage religious affairs in both Muslim and Christian areas of East Africa. It also shows how religious denominations act in opposition to one-party state regimes; Islamic fundamentalism and its role before and after the end of the Cold War; and the part played by Christian churches operating as NGOs within the constraints of structural adjustment.
