ABSTRACT
Naipaul's novel A bend in the river illustrates the social confusion and people's destitution and wasting time in African countries after their national independence. An important reason is the president's self-publicity, tyrannical ness and destructiveness. Whereas the author's subjective suspicion is visible in democratic development of African countries. Indeed, in a country development, it is quite necessary to depend on its citizen, observing public feelings; controlling a state with science; benefiting citizen; utilizing resources; constructing homestead, intending creation with a harmonious and stable way.
