Overview

This invaluable collection compares the relatively unsuccessful economic development of Subsaharan Africa with that of the successful Asian economies, especially the Asian 'tigers'. It covers three main areas of comparison: the lessons for Africa from the Asian experience; secondly, the comparisons of various aspects of economic development in Africa and Asia; and finally, convergence: how far the laggard economies are catching up with, or diverging away from, each other.

Violence against women, argues Hoffman (political theory, U. of Leicester) should be seen as an attack on sovereignty, and attempts to create a post-patriarchal order that is not also post-statist are futile and self-defeating. He advocates a relational view of sovereignty that emphasizes the importance of people as individuals while acknowledging that each person is distinct in terms of general categories and the embodiment of particular and unrepeatable life experiences.
