It is a truism that many African countries face a three-pronged tribulation - political tyranny; failed capitalist development; and violent domestic conflict. What is less clear, Richard Sandbrook argues in this thoughtful reflection on African democracy and development, is what relationship may exist between effective democratic institutions and the solution of the last two problems. Drawing on a lifetime's study of African politics, he draws particularly on the experience with democratisation of a carefully selected sample of countries: Ghana, Mali and Niger in West Africa; Zambia, Tanzania and Madagascar in East Africa; and Sudan.
