Product description

Review

'Stefan Andreasson has crafted a very well-grounded/-informed treatise about both region & literatures, juxtaposing politics & economics with sociology & history. He is both revisionist & idealistic about the elusiveness of development & democracy, advocating a post-development perspective. He confronts notions of developmental state/nexus along with corporatism by reference to the comparative political economy of a trio of Southern African states. This book constitutes a major contribution to (Southern) African & (post-) development studies at the start of the second decade of the 21st century following the recent global financial restructuring. The latter might just offer a new space or window for the global South to finally overcome the development impasse in this as other continents.'
Professor Timothy M Shaw, Institute of International Relations at the University of the West Indies

'This important book interrogates Africa s position under the conditions of late modernity and the hegemony of liberalism and offers up an original vision for a genuinely emancipatory project that may, finally, create space for the continent s own thinking on development issues. By engaging with the post-development debates, Andreasson s work makes a highly innovative contribution to discussions about how and in which ways the continent can negotiate its own future, drawing upon its indigenous intellectual and material resources.'
Ian Taylor, University of St Andrews/University of Stellenbosch

'A bold and imaginative reflection, in the context of southern Africa, on what the post-development injunction to seek alternatives to development can actually mean. This book contains the most sensitive and nuanced treatment of post-development thinking I have read. I highly recommend this volume not just to Africanists, but to all those who, with an open mind, are willing to reconsider just what the development enterprise is and might be.' --Richard Sandbrook, Professor of Political Science, University of Toronto
