Africa is in a Mess: What Went Wrong and what Should be Done
Book Description Diagnosis and prescription. What went wrong since independence in the sixties, and what can be done to alleviate misery and suffering on the least developed and poorest continent, yet one endowed with an abundance of natural resources and hundreds of millions of people. The author critically examines the views of many people on the subject, including "recolonization" of the continent as advocated by some - among them a number of African diplomats and scholars as well as politicians including the prime minister of Sierra Leone in the nineties - and offers innovative solutions to Africa's perennial problems. A hard-hitting book by a Tanzanian academic author, the work is written in simple yet captivating prose, without scholarly pretensions or jargon, and is intended for members of the general public as much as it is for those of the academic community. Brutally frank and lucid in argument articulated from a Pan-African perspective. Author Biography GODFREY MWAKIKAGILE has written several books found in university and public libraries around the world. They include Economic Development in Africa; Africa and the West; Ethnic Politics in Kenya and Nigeria: A Comparative Study; Military Coups in West Africa Since the Sixties; The Modern African State: Quest for Transformation; and Nyerere and Africa: End of an Era, all of which are used as college text books.
