Overview

Distinguished experts on African development offer their considerable knowledge and background to the coming crisis in Africa. They examine not only development but also related factors such as foreign trade, politics, indigenous traditions, and international relations in order to understand development problems on the continent. It is one of the first volumes since the end of the Cold War to analyze African development, or the lack thereof, that had polarized the developing countries for the past 30 years. Yansané and his contributors present the strengths and weaknesses of various development strategies including ideas for the future, such as the inclusion of the human dimension that was overlooked in past strategies for growth. This inclusion would increase participation and the accountability of the political system and parties.
