Dal Didia


After reading through this book, the first thing that came to my mind was – what a timely effort. The editor has put together a first rate contemporary book on African economic development. The book is quite comprehensive in its approach to the treatment of development issues facing Africa. It covers a broad range of topics at the level that academicians, public officials, and students alike can relate to. I find the style and substance of this text quite appealing. Issues and methods that serve only to confuse readers without contributing substantially to the subject are minimized. The relating of theory to practical experience will also distinguish this book from existing textbooks.
