About this book

From the publisher's announcement:

This ground-breaking book with a foreword by Mary Robinson, former president of Ireland and UN human rights commissioner, uniquely distils the complex issues surrounding Africa as it enters the 21st century.

African and Western scholars provide a fascinating `map' which reviews urban and rural livelihoods, the potential of fresh water fishing, health, the HIV/AIDS crisis, conflict and efforts at peace making. Also included are critical assessments of Africa's role in the global economy, the growth of regional economic cooperation within Africa, the evolution of its political institutions, the influence of ethnicity on the continent's politics, and the influence of Africa's legal systems on its development. A substantial introductory essay by the editors measures the distance Africa has travelled and the lessons it has learned since Africa in Crisis, the classic Earthscan book, was published in 1985.
