From the Publisher"Africa is a treasury of illuminating information and insights. An authoritative tour de force, it spans history, geography, demography, society, environment, economics, health, politics and development. As a contemporary introduction and source of reference it will be invaluable. The maps, tables and figures, as well as the text, cover and illustrate a wide range of aspects and give much food for thought. Scholarly, accessible and stimulating, this is a book for development professionals and students alike." Professor Robert Chambers, Research Associate, Institute of Development Studies, UK.
"This text is a refreshing look at the development possibilities for Africa's future through sharp lenses in each chapter. The authors have delivered an in-depth discourse that challenges our perception of how the multiple nations and cultures of Africa take on development, health issues and urbanisation without taking a one-size fits all approach. The book is a thorough and textured look into an issue close to all of our hearts: Africa's future." Hon. Professor Anna Tibaijuka (MP), Minister for Lands, Housing and Human Settlements Development, Tanzania.
