The lack of effective leadership and disciplined workforce is a major contributor to the lack of economic development and progress in the Sub-Saharan African countries. The essays in this book take a fresh look at Sub-Saharan African problems of underdevelopment and argue the need for African countries to incorporate appropriate personality characteristics in the education and training of their labor force. The volume is aimed at providing international development scholars and agencies, Sub-Saharan African countries, and non-governmental organizations with an overview of the problems in Sub-Saharan Africa, and supplying some possible solutions.
