About this product
- DescriptionWhile Africa is too often regarded as lying on the periphery of the global political arena, this is t the case. African nations have played an important historical role in world affairs. It is with this understanding that the authors in this volume set out upon researching and writing their chapters, making an important collective contribution to our understanding of modern Africa. Taken as a whole, the chapters represent the range of research in African development, and fully tie this development to the global political ecomy. African nations play significant roles in world politics, both as nations influenced by the ebbs and flows of the global ecomy and by the international political system, but also as actors, directly influencing politics and ecomics. It is only through an understanding of both the history and present place of Africa in global affairs that we can begin to assess the way forward for future development.
