Democracy of Chameleons: Politics and Culture in the New Malawi

Author: Harri Englund

Nordic Africa Institute, Uppsala, 2002, pp. 208 pb

This book explores how far the ending of one-man rule in 1994 had achieved wider economic, social and cultural changes and explores the continuing problems such as political intolerance and hate speech.  The contributors, mostly from Malawi, criticize both 'chameleon' political leaders and aid donors for supporting superficial democratization.
