Confronting the Challenges and Prospects in the Creation of a Union of African States in the 21st Century contextualizes the discourse around the urgent call for African unity that engaged the works of great pan-Africanists such as Du Bois, Garvey, Nkrumah, Kenyatta, Nyerere, Cabral, and a host of others in the twentieth century. This quest for African unity achieved its first historic triumph with the formation of the Organization of African Unity following the attainment of political independence by African states in the 1960s. The establishment of the African Union extended this quest for African unity, even as African states confronted the travails of globalization at the turn-of-the twenty first century. If we expect significant improvement in the conditions of Africans, and hope for the growth of Africa s influence in world affairs, then this timely book contends that progressive African leaders must mobilize their people into action, insisting on a path to Africa s unification during this century. This laudable objective, the author, E. Ike Udogu, a distinguished pan-Africanist intellectual persuasively contends, requires the deep commitment of progressive African leaders, activists, and intellectuals. This is a provocative, incisive, and bold volume. It ought to be read by African administrators, policy makers, diplomats, and students as well as intelligent lay people who believe in African unity. The book is lucid and analytical. Keeping faith with a great continent, and in indefatigable style, Udogu once again deploys his excellent scholarship in the service of Africa s vibrant societies. --Olufemi Vaughan, DPhil (Oxford), Geoffrey Canada Professor of Africana Studies & History, Director, Africana Studies Program, Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Maine
