Many writers have understood colonial rule as both "direct" (French) or "indirect" (British), with a 3rd variant--apartheid--as unparalleled. This benign terminology, Mamdani exhibits, mask the truth that those have been truly variations of a despotism. whereas direct rule denied rights to matters on racial grounds, oblique rule included them right into a "customary" mode of rule, with state-appointed local specialists defining customized. by way of tapping authoritarian probabilities in tradition, and via giving tradition an authoritarian bent, oblique rule (decentralized despotism) set the velocity for Africa; the French go well with by means of altering from direct to oblique management, whereas apartheid emerged fairly later. Apartheid, Mamdani exhibits, used to be truly the primary type of the colonial kingdom in Africa.

Example text

What is missing in the multilayered governance alternative is a sense of why politics matters. Where official aid agencies and international financial institutions currently claim to intervene in poor countries in the name of development or in the name of the poor, they face the same criticisms as past colonial rulers: they cannot claim to be representatives of recipient country populations and they cannot be held accountable by them. The very idea that external actors can create ownership hints at the way that, in defining ownership as commitment to externally defined reform agendas, donors have denuded the concept of the key source of its progressive content: its potential to attach to popular aspirations.

Although the language jars now, this is a qualification worth noting because many of the contemporary arguments against Mill’s general principle of non-intervention also draw on arguments about the nature of reason and will in African societies that relate to Mill’s definition of barbarism. Our disagreement in this chapter is with widespread contemporary characterization of Africans as ‘less reasoning’.
