Product description

Review

Duncan Clarke's latest book on Africa sets out to answer tough questions about the continent, often asked but seldom satisfactorily answered: What shaped Africa's economies? What went wrong? And can its recent growth be sustained? The result is rather like travelling around Africa in the company of a knowledgeable and entertaining guide who draws lessons from the past while mapping out the future. Challenging theories and defying conventional wisdom throughout, he knows Africa too well to come up with easy or glib answers and provides a stimulating and thought-provoking journey. (Michael Holman, former Africa editor of Financial Times, London, was raised in central Africa and is author of three novels set in east Africa)

A richly detailed review of Africa's past and what it tells us about the future, providing a sobering view of the realities on the ground. Indispensable for anyone interested in global trends in the 21st century. (Ian Morris)

Book Description

One of the world's leading strategists on global oil exploration puts forward a unique reformulation of Africa's economic past, present and future, revealing the continent's changing political landscape and likely trajectories.
