Ep17. Conversations with Dr. Rachel Beatty Riedl and Dr. Jennifer Brass about two new books on African politics

This week’s episode features two conversations about recently published books on African politics.

First, I chat with Dr. Rachel Beatty Riedl (@BeattyRiedl), Associate Professor of Political Science at Northwestern University. Her award-winning book, Authoritarian Origins of Party Systems in Africa, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2014. Our conversation begins at 3:30.

My second conversation is with Dr. Jennifer Brass (@jennifer_brass), Assistant Professor at the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University. Brass’s book, Allies or Adversaries? NGOs and the State in Africa, was also published by Cambridge University Press in 2016. Our conversation begins at 14:21.

Our featured song this week is Huya by Zimbabwean artist Ulethu (@UlethuG). It begins at 25:59.
