Depuis les débuts de los angeles Ve République, l'Afrique noire a été l'objet d'une realization très particulière des hauts dirigeants français qui l'ont incluse dans leur " domaine réservé ", sous le contrôle tutélaire et direct de l'Elysée: du Secrétariat aux Affaires africaines et malgaches de Jacques Foccart, sous de Gaulle, jusqu'à ses équivalents actuels.

Nombre d'" affaires " ont révélé, au fil des ans, le caractère difficulty, aventureux et parfois compromettant des relatives entre Paris et certains gouvernants de ses anciennes colonies. " Diamants ", barbouzes, mercenaires, putsches, safaris, sacres impériaux, votes des " Français de l'étranger ", affaires du S.A.C., financement des partis politiques, trafics d'influences, pots de vin et prébendes: l'accent fut alors souvent mis sur des cas de corruption, des excès de potentats locaux _ plus rarement sur les véritables intérêts en reason, les réseaux et groupes de pression, les jeux d'influences réciproques, l'intrication croissante de l. a. politique franco-africaine des gouvernements successifs et de leurs préoccupations de politique intérieure...

Un cas résume à lui seul toute l'ampleur et l'ambiguïté de ces family d'" interdépendance ": le Gabon, petit émirat équatorial gorgé de pétrole et d'autres ressources stratégiques. l. a. minutieuse enquête menée par Pierre Péan à partir de cette plaque-tournante des enjeux franco-africains révèle que convinced néocolonialisme risque de n'être plus aujourd'hui à sens targeted, et que los angeles politique de Paris n'est pas à l'abri des pressions de lobbies ou de chantages aux renversements d'alliances...

Chronique d'un quart de siècle de family members franco-africaines, ce livre ne constitue pas un mince chapitre de l'histoire secrète de los angeles Ve République.

Sample text

But the end of the age of imperialism was not the end of the era of external involvement in the Horn. The balance between external and internal was to alter; but just as imperialism had influenced rather than wholly transformed indigenous societies, so after independence those societies would remain influenced from without, though driven more directly by internal dynamics.  Sudan The nationalists in power, – Sudan’s heterogeneity and political complexity, both externally with the struggles of the co-domini, Britain and Egypt, and internally with the rival sectarian-based parties and the isolation of the south, was contained rather than resolved with the coming of independence.

The demands and moves of the Derg, backed by its new-found allies, rapidly outmanoeuvred the old emperor. Eventually, in September , Haile Selassie was deposed and he was murdered in detention in the following year. His downfall marked an early step in the Ethiopian revolution but not the end of the road. Conclusion The European imperial system that had drawn the boundaries of the Horn and influenced internal political developments had collapsed with the independence of Sudan in  and Somalia in .

Other factors were more conventional African experiences, including the growth of a small Western-educated elite with perceptions of the changing international order, while the history of early Somali resistance was personified in Sayed Mohamed Abdille Hasan’s vision and resistance to imperialism. The Somali Youth League (SYL), begun in , was to be the dominant nationalist party in the years after the Second World War. However, it was not the only party, and the potential for fragmentation based largely around clans was observable from the outset.
