The Political Economy of Economic Growth in Africa, 1960-2000, Hardback Book


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.
