5. Writing the Empire story Empire has been a powerful theme in British and postcolonial literature, and was once a central feature of the British national story taught to schoolchildren and consequently embedded in the national conscience. Imperial and wider world themes were encountered in a vast array of adult and children's literature, from Our Empire Story Told to Boys and Girls (1908) to the pages of public school-inspired comics such as Chums , the news coverage of the British press, and the novels, poems, and short stories of Kipling, Rider Haggard, G. A. Henty, Conrad, and

7. The military in African politics A coup d’état is an extra-constitutional or forced change of government, literally a ‘strike against the state’. Africa has been one of the continents worst affected by coups and other interventions by the armed forces into politics: since the 1960s there have been more than 200 coups in Africa, with around half of them being successful. Very few countries have enjoyed uninterrupted democracy since independence, and prior to the 1990s, military coups were ‘normal’ in many countries. Indeed, between 1960 and 1982, almost 90 per cent of independent African states had been subjected to

9. Africa’s international relations Despite the myth of marginality and irrelevance, Africa has always played an important—often vital—role in international politics. The slave trade, the ‘Scramble for Africa’ and subsequent colonial period, the proxy wars of the Cold War, and the increasing importance of the continent’s natural resources all demonstrate how significant Africa has been to the wider global political economy. There has been a constant flow of ideas, material goods, and political contacts between Africa, Europe, and Asia since ancient times. Indeed, the continent’s extra-African political and economic ties were mature long before European people began ‘discovering’ Africa. The

Conclusion African Americans are generally more religious than other groups in the United States. In a 2009 Pew Foundation study, 87 percent of African Americans described themselves as belonging to some religious group; 79 percent reported that religion is very important to the way they live their lives. Even among those black folk who reported no religious affiliation, 72 percent reported that religion plays a somewhat important role in their lives, and nearly half (46 percent) said that religion is very important. African Americans pray more than most Americans. Nine out of ten (88 percent) believe with absolute certainty that
