Edited by Benno J. Ndulu, Stephen A. O'Connell, Jean-Paul Azam, Robert H. Bates, Augustin Kwasi Fosu, Jan Willem Gunning, Dominique Nijinkeu
The period from 1960 to 2000 was one of remarkable growth and transformation in the world economy.
Why did most of Sub-Saharan Africa fail to develop over this period?
Why did a few small African economies succeed spectacularly?
The Political Economy of Economic Growth in Africa, 1960-2000 is by far the most ambitious and comprehensive assessment of Africa's post-independence economic performance to date.
Volume 2 supports and extends the analysis of African economic growth presented in the first volume by providing twenty-six case studies of individual African economies.
The book is broken into three parts based on the three main types of economy found in Sub-Saharan Africa: landlocked, coastal and resource-rich.
Eighteen of the case studies are contained in the book and a further eight are included on an accompanying CD-Rom.
This is an invaluable resource for researchers and policy-makers concerned with the economic development of Africa.
