Editorial Reviews

Review

"[a]ny personal, professional, or academic library reference collection strong in African social issues and history won't want to miss Roeel Van Der Veen's powerful What Went Wrong with Africa, charting the unprecedented changes in people's standards of living in Africa over the years. Africa is the only large contiguous region left out of the worldwide rise in prosperity: What Went Wrong with Africa seeks to explain why." (Library Bookwatch)

"This work is commendable on several counts. First, it is arguably one of the most ambitious syntheses of contemporary African history and politics to date, combining the study of internal and external factors, usually treated separately in the literature under the rubrics of African politics and African international relations. Furthermore, van der Veen adops a unique multi-disciplinary perspective, as well as a long-term historical perspective, rightly arguing that 'in order to understand Africa's present-day situation, we must look not only at outside influences but also at long-term, indigenous African elements." (African Studies Review)

Format: Paperback
The price tag for a paperwork may seem steep even if it is packed with almost four hundred pages of detail; but any personal, professional, or academic library reference collection strong in African social issues and history won't want to miss Roel Van Der Veen's powerful What Went Wrong With Africa, charting the unprecedented changes in people's standards of living in Africa over the years. Africa is the only large contiguous region left out of the worldwide rise in prosperity: What Went Wrong With Africa seeks to explain why.
