Despite unprecedented economic growth in some African countries since 2000, Africa still faces major development challenges. In this important book contributors look beyond the Millennium Development Goals to highlight 12 major public policy conversations about the continent post-2015, arguing that Africa as a continent must work on developing a society that is socially, economically and politically inclusive.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In exploring the multiple dimensions of the Post-2015 development agenda for Africa, this clear, well-structured, and compelling collection by leading African and international scholars offer promising but realistic policy choices for addressing the region's challenges" Francis Owusu, Iowa State University, USA
"A valuable and wide-ranging discussion of the achievements and challenges of African development that demonstrates the importance of a `developmental state' in enabling Africans to take charge of their own destiny." Professor Diane Elson, Department of Sociology, University of Essex, UK
"A refreshing and comprehensive political economy perspective on Africa's socio-economic transformation within the post-2015 development agenda. It is a must read for both economists and non-economists who yearn for freedom from the `Africa rising' mantra. A highly compelling and wonderfully readable story." Dr Khabele Matlosa, African Union Commission, Ethiopia
