Women In Guinea-Bissau And The Cape Verde Islands: Their Impact In The Liberation Struggle And The Transformation Process, Sophia Jetelle Woodard

ETD Collection for AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library

The purpose of conducting this research was to make accessible a detailed analysis of women’s involvement, roles, contributions in the national liberation movement in Guinea-Bissau and the Cape Verde Islands. Such a study was necessary because of the scanty nature of the information available on this particular subject matter. In order to adequately assess the women’s engagement in the liberation movement - the African Party for the Independence of Guinea—Bissau and Cape Verde (PAIGC), it was of equal significance to focus on their impact in the national culture, the economy, and the political structure. Additionally, a comparison was ...

An Analysis Of Policies And Practices In Nonindustrial Private Forestry: A Review Of Educational And Technical Assistance In North Carolina, Rudolph Wilson

ETD Collection for AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library

This study emanates from the view that educational and technical assistance programs are key variables in woodlot owners’, especially farmers’, propensity to engage in systematic forest management practices. The dissertation findings indicate that, based upon the medium and quality of communication, the distribution of educational and technical assistance by forestry—elated agencies have systematically benefitted large-scale landowners over small-scale and minority landowners. Thus, a structure of inequality exists in forestry-related services which tends to perpetuate a system of discrimination based upon the size of landownership and the race of the landowner. “Economies of scale” debates play a great role in ...

Interventionism In Africa: An Analytic Comparative Study Of The Politics Of Foreign Intervention In Angola And Zaire, Ibiyinka Oluwole Solarin

ETD Collection for AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library

This study is an attempt to elucidate on the complex phenomenon of intervention in two African countries, i.e., Republic of Zaire and the People's Republic of Angola. Any study that examines the interventionist thrust of one polity on another, (if it lays claim to an exhaustive treatment of the subject matter) must recognize the multi-layered facets of intervention, for example, from politics, social institutions, religion to culture. Mindful of the variegated nature of this phenomenon, this study has only focused on politicomilitary intervention.

An attempt is made to provide the historical background of Western assault on Africa generally ...

Revolutionary Action Movement (Ram): A Case Study Of An Urban Revolutionary Movement In Western Capitalist Society, Maxwell C. Stanford

ETD Collection for AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library

The primary intent of this thesis is to present a political descriptive analysis of the Revolutionary Action Movement (RAM), and urban revolutionary movement active in the 1960's. An attempt has been made to portray the historical context, the organization, ideology of the RAM organization and response of the state to the activities of the organization.

The thesis presents a methodological approach to developing a paradigm in which the study of urban revolutionary movements is part of a rational analysis. The thesis also explains concepts and theories that are presented later in the text. A review of black radical activity ...
