Das Werk ist Teil der Reihe: Global Political Thinkers


‘Ali Mazrui’s ideas quite often sprang from lived experiences and discourses from which he churned chains of books and articles whose styles were peculiar to himself and came to be known as “Mazruiana.” This book finally tells the story of the evolution of this body of knowledge.' —P. Anyang’ Nyong’o, Professor and Kenyan Politician, Kenya ‘This book offers a unique glimpse of the witty Africanist Ali Mazrui, who was befriended by so many, including major political figures. It is a timely contribution highlighting the overlooked, rich narratives of a thinker of international relations from the global south.' —Jacqueline Anne Braveboy-Wagner, Professor, The City University of New York, USA ‘Ali Mazrui’s remarkable corpus lives, and Seifudein Adem interprets it for today when its salience is undeniable around race, religion etc. Adem’s decade with the maestro maximizes his book’s insights for Africa and the world as both are in flux.' —Timothy M. Shaw, Adjunct Professor, Carleton University and University of Ottawa, Canada This book introduces Ali Mazrui’s delightfully stimulating scholarship about intercultural relations, calling it Postcolonial Constructivism, and shares elements of his intellectual vitality in an original way. It begins with a chronicle of Mazrui’s eventful, sixty-year journey as a scholar of International Relations. It then proceeds to present some of the most remarkable yet least remarked up on features of his intellectualism, including his paradoxes, his perceptive typologies, his neologisms as well as his interactions with historical figures. The book draws on materials which were either unavailable until now or were found scattered in time and space. Designed as an invitation to a wider audience to the supermarket of Mazrui’s ideas, this book also seeks to underscore the timeliness and possible durability of many of his observations about intercultural relations. Thorough, comprehensive and up-to-date, this book is a concise account of the core of Mazrui’s vast body of work. Seifudein Adem is Professor of Global Studies, Doshisha University, Japan, and Research Associate at the Ali Mazrui Center for Higher Education Studies, University of Johannesburg, South Africa. Previously he was Associate Director of the Institute of Global Cultural Studies, Binghamton University, USA.
