sinopsis

This edited volume addresses the root causes of Africa's persistent poverty through an investigation of its longue durée history. It interrogates the African past through disease and demography, institutions and governance, African economies and the impact of the export slave trade, colonialism, Africa in the world economy, and culture's influence on accumulation and investment. Several of the chapters take a comparative perspective, placing Africa's developments aside other global patterns. The readership for this book spans from the informed lay reader with an interest in Africa, academics and undergraduate and graduate students, policy makers, and those in the development world.
Contains coverage of the past two thousand years, giving this work a remarkable depth for students of history and political economy
Interdisciplinary approach makes this conversation about Africa's development one across multiple social sciences fields
Includes essays from several of the most established scholars who have long engaged in questions of Africa's underdevelopment.
