Read Thabo Mbeki’s Foreword to The African Renaissance and the Afro-Arab Spring: A Season of Rebirth?

The African Renaissance and the Afro-Arab SpringIn his foreword to The African Renaissance and the Afro-Arab Spring: A Season of Rebirth?, edited by Charles Villa-Vicencio, Erik Doxtader and Ebrahim Moosa, former president Thabo Mbeki outlines the the relevance of the Arab Reawakening for Africa.

The African Renaissance and the Afro-Arab Spring is a look at the lessons and insights gained from South Africa’s transition 20 years ago, as well as an assessment of the current turbulence in both African and Arab countries.

Mbeki begins his foreword by asking if it is realistic to understand Africa as connected and impacted by developments in the Arab world, and questions whether the uprisings in the African Maghreb and Egypt advanced or retarded African rebirth.
