Synopsis: The book draws on a substantial body of research to argue that much thinking on Africa--from both official donors and from international NGOs alike--is flawed, because that thinking either does not recognize or does not draw out the implications of the central role of politics and the state in Africa’s development problems.
In almost all African countries the political elites are uninterested in leading a development process. Western donor countries and institutions have largely turned a blind eye to this situation, and indeed aid has become an important resource in maintaining anti-developmental states. By contrast, in almost all other successful development episodes--such as in East Asia--the state has played a key role.
This book places the arguments in the context of the Make Poverty History campaign of 2005, the outcomes of the G8 summit in Gleneagles, and the WTO summit in Hong Kong. It also broadens the scope to address the American approach to aid and the new "transformational diplomacy" agenda.
About the Author: Matthew Lockwood is a consultant with twenty years’ experience of working in and visiting Africa. Since the late 1990s he has worked in several senior policy and campaigning positions in major U.K. Development NGOs and for many years has undertaken extensive research in, and lectured on, sociology and development issues with specific reference to Africa.
