    "[Second Thoughts on Capitalism and the State is a] profoundly reflective book shows a pathway forward for academics and activists alike who are stymied by the disconnect between deep critical scholarship and emancipatory social change, yet who will still not give up the good fight."

Selected African Studies in Memory of Zsuzsánna Biedermann

The book is a dedication to the memory of Dr Zsuzsánna Biedermann via Hungarian scholarship in African studies. It therefore can contribute to broadening the horizon of global knowledge production on African issues. It delves into several subjects by a series of case studies that analyze African and Eastern European connections, Africa’s developmental states, development and urban segregation and processes of food crisis and migration, while also paying particular attention to the country of Rwanda and the region of East Africa, where Dr Biedermann also carried out field research.

This collection of unpublished papers by distinguished Hungarian scholars of African studies is based on secondary and/or primary research results and uses various methodological tools: archival research, field research and statistical analysis. In several instances, certain papers had originally been designed in collaboration with her, but could not take shape due to her death. It draws attention to Africa-related scholarship from the “other Europe”, i.e., post-Communist Central and Eastern European countries.
