Summary
  • "The author of Silent Revolution in Africa turns his attention here to the main problem African countries now face: how to escape from the trap of marginalization, deepening impoverishment and state disintegration in the new era of globalization?"
  • "Professor Fantu Cheru refuses to accept the easy rhetoric of the left or the equally misguided oversimplifications of neoliberal prescriptions. Instead he bases his wide-ranging arguments in the actual realities of what is going on in Africa - the practical lessons to be learned from both mistakes made and the initiatives that have borne positive fruit. He argues for a middle way that goes beyond the simple state-led versus market-driven approaches to Africa's development. This requires international financial institutions to cease their heavyhanded interventions and leave room for countries to decide their own development paths
  • It also requires African countries to renew democracy and improve governance, invest in education, revitalize agriculture, strengthen regional economic integration and prevent yet more deadly conflicts. This means a recognition that there are no simple solutions. It also means carrying out concrete strategies, combining public management and private sector entrepreneurship, and a new generation committed to a new kind of politics."--Jacket
