By Holger Bernt Hansen, Michael Twaddle. It is now 25 years since Uganda ceased to be a British colonial dependency. In these years Uganda has come to symbolize Third World disaster in its direst form. Famine; tyranny; widespread infringements of human rights, amounting at times to genocide; AIDS; malaria; cholera, typhoid, and a massive breakdown of government medical services; corruption, black marketeering, economic collapse; tribalism, civil war, state collapse - think of any one current Third World affliction, and most probably Uganda will have suffered it with as much harshness as Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, or any one.

Uganda Now: Between Decay and Development. Drawing on historical analysis and ethnographic case studies from the northern and eastern regions of Uganda, we argue that the recent increase in disputes over church land can be understood in light of transformations in the nexus of church, state and community.

Can the revolutionary government of Yoweri Museveni’s National Resistance Movement put Uganda back on the road from decay to development?These informed assessments put the present situation in context. The contributors assembled as Museveni’s guerrillas were launching their final bid for power. They have finalized their contributions in the light of the Museveni government’s initial period of power.Contributions by Ugandan academics and politicians interlock with those by scholars from across the world who have a concern for Uganda. Historians examine the period of colonialism. There are political studies of the quarter century since independence. There are detailed analyses of the economic realities for the Ugandan government in the period of international debt. The central role of education in national development is given due prominence.Ali A. Mazrui ends the book by asking ‘Is Africa Decaying?’ The editors have put the consideration of the case of Uganda’s recent history within the context of Africa’s development crisis. Uganda has presented in an aggravated form the crisis common to many other African countries: infrastructural breakdown, mounting foreign debt, military regimes and waves of refugees.
