Editorial Reviews

Review

"Emmanuel Nnadozie has brought together an outstanding group of scholars to write a comprehensive textbook on African development. It fills a major gap in the literature, and will be a splendid resource for many years to come."
--Angus Deaton, Dwight D Eisenhower Professor of International Affairs and Professor of Economics, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey
"This collection of original essays, prepared in support of teaching classes on African economic development, has the advantage of: offering a diversity of points of view coming from both African and non-African experts; bringing into the analysis of underdevelopment a wide range of determinants that link economics to history, geography, culture, and politics; explicitly recognizing the great diversity of causes of and possible solutions to poverty; and projecting a guardedly optimistic vision that Africa could have a better future than what it has known in the last three decades. It is indeed a very useful collection of readings that teachers of economic development will want to use."
--Alain de Janvry, University of California at Berkeley
"The editor has put together a first rate contemporary book on African economic development. It covers a broad range of topics at the level that academicians, public officials, and students alike can relate to. This book is an impressive accomplishment which should serve all those involved one way or another in seeking to understand and proffer solutions to Africa's economic development issues."
West Africa Review, 2002
"African Economic Development would be a valuable addition to the library of economics faculty, economists and graduate students in economics and international development, politicians, political economists, and policy makers in Africa, and in other developing countries as well as in private and public international organizations.
Journal of African Business, 2004.

This collection of original articles paints a hopeful picture of African economic development. While recognizing the factors that have resulted in underdevelopment, the contributors suggest that a significant reduction of poverty is possible. Each article singles out particular problems demographic, geographic, political, educational, agricultural, and so forth and proposes solutions that put Africa's needs and capabilities first. In its sweeping surveys of African economics,African Economic Developmentoffers an eclectic and useful source of data and perspectives that enable contributors to focus on pragmatic solutions, not ideological or political answers. Balancing theory and empiricism, this book provides an important vantage point for heralding Africa's elusive dawn
