This is a book that very nicely bridges the worlds of the academe, policy, and practice, in a way that allows readers to understand and reflect on how far Africa has come on the development continuum, how much more needs to be accomplished, and how elusive it is to find the right formula for attaining and sustaining development objectives--despite four-plus decades of studying and writing about these issues. (Folu F. Ogundimu)
This volume offers an important contribution to the development of communication literature, building from historical and cultural perspectives particular to this regional context. (Karin Wilkins)
