Africa in Crisis free pdf This collection provides an overview of Africa at the millennium. It explores important new social, political and economic trends that are emerging in the wake of post-colonial development. Political monopolies of one-party states are being challenged, while economies are undergoing major structural changes as a result of internal and external pressures. This volume analyses these changes and makes predictions for the future. The contributors examine such topics as structural adjustment and labour strategies in Nigeria- the role of international donors and civil society in Zimbabwe, French foreign policy toward Africa, global-local perspectives on African security issues- and the US democratic experiment in Ghana. Contributors include Christopher Clapman, Lionel Cliffe, Paul Richards, Ankie Hoogvelt and Donna Pankhurst.
