NEPAD, the New Partnership for Africa's Development, is the latest attempt to chart a new course of good governance and effective development for the continent. In this book, some of Africa's best economists and social scientists reflect on its previous experience with alternatives to structural adjustment. The aim is to chart viable policy directions for the future, and to assess the prospects of NEPAD measuring up to the challenges involved. The eminent economist Professor Adebayo Adedeji, in honor of whose seventieth birthday the essays were compiled, is well-known for his pioneering work on the African Alternative Framework to Structural Adjustment, at a time when the damage caused by structural adjustment was only just beginning to become clear.
