MEDIA REVIEWS

'This book offers an important contribution to current debates about the economic development of sub-Saharan African countries. It covers a vast spectrum of countries with widely diverse problems and national specificities, and offers insightful analyses that will be of interest to students, scholars and policy-makers in the region.' - Alfredo Saad Filho, University of London, UK

'This book provides an up-to-date and revealing overview of economic trends in Africa. It provides a good introduction to those not yet familiar with African economies, but also will stimulate new thinking among those already working in this area. Among other issues, it makes a particular contribution in providing insights on the dynamics of migration in the continent. It will be a valuable addition to the libraries of all those interested in African economic development.' - Brian Van Arkadie, Institute of Social Studies, The Hague, Netherlands

'George Kararach's book is a most welcome addition to the literature on African development policy. It contains detailed discussion of key policy issues based on a wealth of experience, with much of the analysis being extremely difficult to access from alternative sources. The contents are up-to-date, and considerable guidance is given to the enquiring reader who wishes to delve even more deeply or to update the information-base and the literature/ documentation. This will be an invaluable source book for public servants both domestic and international, for development consultants and researchers, for postgraduate research students, for postgraduate and undergraduate students of international development, as well as for general readers interested in African development.' - Michael Tribe, University of Strathclyde, UK.

'Africa's recent growth performance has generated some optimism for the future. This book confronts the serious socio-economic problems which the continent's people continue to face. Its development of strategies and policies for seriously addressing those problems are to be particularly welcomed.'- Malcolm Sawyer, University of Leeds, UK
