EMERGING AFRICA by Steve Radelet offers a timely and useful analysis of historical developments on the continent and points the way forward many countries are now following. Of special interest is his presentation of growth rates and the relationship between investment and trade. Radelet draws effectively from the criteria of the U.S. Millennium Challenge Corporation and the UN Millennium Development Goals to demonstrate how Africa's partners can encourage national identification of priority advancement areas. The author merits praise for inclusion of diaspora professionals as well as identification of remaining obstacles to Africa's fullest potential as a global player.

Steven Radelet's "Emerging Africa" is a good tonic to news reports that inevitably focus on the latest humanitarian or political crisis in a region that, beyond the headlines, is making real progress toward becoming the world's next great developing region.

Using expert analysis and data-driven argumentation, Radalet, now the chief economist at USAID, paints a portrait of an Africa of promise or potential. Well worth reading.

The author tries to lump states into his set categories. They don't fit. He neglects states like Mozambique and over emphasizes states like Liberia. Not very impressive use of economic performance data.

Steven Radelet knows Africa about as well as anyone who starts from a Western perspective. He is also a premier economist. He has combined his intimate knowledge of the continent with his academic rigor to produce a remarkable and vital analysis of the progress that is moving much of Africa forward. It provides a model for the rest of Africa, and indeed the entire developing world, for progress.
