Sorry, this product is not currently available to order

Description

This text re-evaluates the contemporary political economy of Africa in the light of continuing economic and ecological crises, changing perceptions and prescriptions, and transformations in global economic and strategic relations. It treats hitherto overlooked issues such as gender and informal structures and military expenditures. It suggests that established perspectives need to be superseded by revisionist approaches and it anticipates disappointment with current structural adjustment programmes, advocating instead a return to various forms of self-reliance.
