Africa's regionalisation processes are closely intertwined with changing patterns of globalisation, where Africa is increasingly incorporated on a subordinate basis into the emerging global order. These studies examine various aspects of the impact of globalisation on Africa, the problems confronting regional integration, tensions within and between states, and the rise of an international informal economy.

As a severe indictment of the mistakes and delusions that have aggravated the poor economic condition of Africa in the independence era, this book will serve as an important reference for anyone actively following Africa's recent history - especially its vain attempts to overcome the colonial inheritance ... What it captures is ... an Africa constantly let down by its governments and institutions, and an Africa ready for change but unable to find its way forward. It is a true enough portrait, and painted by an impressive array of analysts. - Richard Synge in THE ROUND TABLE
...he has lifted the lid on a little-observed, but vitally important aspect of contemporary African life. - Martin Plaut in INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS
