'Africa's debt burden is again at the centre of a global debate over repayment suspension or cancellation. In "Where Credit is Due", Gregory Smith succinctly reviews the mistakes of the past and shows that lessons can be learned and African solutions must take centre stage. This is an important book for anyone seeking fresh thinking on how to turn this crisis into a longer term opportunity to scale up investment for post-Covid19 economic recovery and achieve the development goals.' -- Alex Vines OBE, Director, Africa Programme, Chatham House and Assistant Professor, Coventry University
'This fluent study brings together many insights on Africa debt. Just as debt used wisely is an essential tool for African development, this book is invaluable to understanding its pitfalls and Africa's policy choices.' -- Former President of Nigeria and Chairperson of the African Union Olusegun Obasanjo
'Gregory Smith's book is an extensively researched and well-argued analysis of how Africa can access and make best use of debt financing. The comprehensive country breakdowns give a timely reminder that Africa is not a generic investment destination. The book will be of interest to policymakers, investors and academics in Africa and globally.' -- David Whitehouse, business editor, The Africa Report
