Growth and development are among the most exciting subjects in economics, and the application of their principles to African economies is both needed and timely. African Economic Development comprises a collection of articles written especially for this volume, which offer an authoritative statement about economic growth and development on the continent. Chapters are grouped together according to the major influences on growth and development and their effects, as well as the significant or unique problems which have slowed or undermined African growth, and the manifestations of development by country or region and by industry. While many books on regional economics become quickly outdated and overly narrow, these multidisciplinary regional studies with an economic bias will be considered cornerstones of the field for some years to come.

"Emmanuel Nnadozie has brought together an outstanding group of scholars to write a comprehensive textbook on African development. It fills a major gap in the literature, and will be a splendid resource for many years to come."
Angus Deaton, Dwight D. Eisenhower Professor of International Affairs and Professor of Economics, Princeton University, New Jersey
"This collection of original essays, prepared in support of teaching classes on African economic development, has the advantage of: offering a diversity of points of view coming from both African and non-African experts; bringing into the analysis of underdevelopment a wide range of determinants that link economics to history, geography, culture, and politics; explicitly recognizing the great diversity of causes of and possible solutions to poverty; and projecting a guardedly optimistic vision that Africa could have a better future than what it has known in the last three decades. It is indeed a very useful collection of readings that teachers of economic development will want to use."
Alain de Janvry, University of California at Berkeley
This collection of original articles paints a hopeful picture of African economic development. While recognizing the factors that have resulted in underdevelopment, the contributors suggest that a significant reduction of poverty is possible. Each article singles out particular problems demographic, geographic, political, educational, agricultural, and so forth and proposes solutions that put Africa's needs and capabilities first. In its sweeping surveys of African economics, African Economic Developmentoffers an eclectic and useful source of data and perspectives that enable contributors to focus on pragmatic solutions, not ideological or political answers. Balancing theory and empiricism, this book provides an important vantage point for heralding Africa's elusive dawn
Nnadozie is associate professor of economics at Truman State University.
