This book offered contributors the opportunity to put their experience in public service and politics into writing to help groom future Political Scientists and leaders who will not only learn the theoretical perspectives but also learn the practical aspects of
African politics and values. The book contains clear discussions and analysis of key issues within the frame work of political behaviour. The text highlights a wide range of issues, for instance, political socialisation, political communication, political power and
authority. It focuses on the recent interpretations of ethnicity and electoral behaviour, gender and politics as well as elite behaviour in context of political leadership. The objective is to draw conclusions that provide relevant insights and recommendations which will add
value to the study of Political Behaviour.The aim is to produce a book that will serve as a rich reference material not only for academics, but also for governmental and non-governmental actors, including public servants, policy makers and politicians.
