13173. The Limits to "Modernization" in Colonial Africa. A detailed examination of the problem of psychological and social "modernization" in late colonial Africa. Focuses on three specific examples: the 'Kimbangist' church movement (an adaptation of Christianity) in the Congo region 1920's--1940's; the tribal 'consolidation' and renewal movement of the Fang peoples in Cameroun and Gabon 1947-51; and the career of Adegoke Adelabu, a Nigerian politician who made a transition from a distinctly marginal commercial/bureaucratic career to a Cabinet position before and untimely death in 1958. Conclusion mixes importance of 'modernization' changes in individual lives, with socio-political-economic structures that provided firm limits to large-scale social change. 12 pages, 19 footnotes, 4 bibliographic sources.   $84
