Book Description

First published in 1990, this volume considers the question: is there any hope for economic recovery in Africa? Written by a team of leading development economists, the book takes a close look at the economic decline of Sub-Saharan Africa and provides a set of guidelines for promoting economic recovery. Stressing the need for greater co-operation between African states, the contributors outline the economic and social policies required to put this crisis-torn region back on the road to sustained development.
