Media reviews

"[...] Here is a well-written and straightforward presentation of important information about events that have taken place in the continent, especially since the end of the cold war. Its readability makes it suitable for upper-level undergraduate courses, while politicians and decision-makers in both the public and private sectors, as well as people in business and workers in non-governmental organisations, will find the factual details and careful analyses very useful"
– Richard J. Payne in Journal of Modern African Studies

"[...] a book with contributions from Africa to discuss African realities today [...] the range of perspectives and issues it presents again appears singularly broad [...]"
– Martin Doornbos in Development & Change
