Rate this:
The education of many Third World leaders by Christian missionaries is a decisive factor in world politics today. Christian missionaries from a diversity of backgrounds - Africans as well as Americans and Europeans - contributed to the construction, destruction and reconstruction of state structures in Africa and the Caribbean, through educational activity, and attempts at healing and trade, as well as by preaching, prayer and other sacramental endeavours. This is a study of Christian missionaries and the state in the Third World.
