Provides a critical examination of African and international responses to Africa's economic decline of the last two decades, especially the links between economics and politics.

Beautifully written and full of enormously useful detail. . . . I haven't seen anything comparable that brings both economic and political perspectives together in providing a review of Africa's crisis.
