Mahmood Mamdani is not an economist but a political scientist. He
teaches at Columbia, so getting in touch may not be difficult.
Mamdani contributed a critique of IMF policies in Uganda to Dharam
Ghai's book about The IMF (book must be decade old, though). Mamdani
also wrote a book on Imperialism and Fascism in Uganda. Before that
he wrote a book on class structure in Uganda which I believe came out
of his Harvard dissertation. By the way, his recent book Good Muslim,
Bad Muslim is a badly needed intervention. Perhaps some US OPE-L'ers
have heard him speaking on this book on alternative radio stations?
