About this book

Uganda's recovery since Museveni came to power in 1986 has greatly impressed the onlooking world. But does the reality live up to the image? This book assesses what has happened and the prospects for the country's future.

'This timely collection of twenty chapters presents revisionist insights into both African studies in general and scholarship on Uganda in particular...' - International Journal of African Historical Studies 'These remarks emphasize the particular value of this book: it not only offers the newcomer to Uganda a good introduction to topical issues, but also engages readers who are more familiar with the country in argument.' - Jan Kees van Donge in African Affairs '...a good picture of the current status of Uganda' - Choice 'Par la richesse et la diversite de leurs analyses, ces ... livres collectifs s'etaient rapidement imposes comme ouvrages de reference... Developing Uganda ajoute une pierre a cet ambitieux edifice scientifique.' - Politique Africaine
