Prospects for Recovery and Sustainable Development in Africa

By Aguibou Y. Yansané | Go to book overview

Preface

The essays in this book and its companion volume are a selection from a larger number of papers presented at the San Francisco State University Multidisciplinary Colloquium Series on "Evaluation of Development Strategies: Prospects for Growth in Africa in the 1990s."

The materials of the colloquium are arranged into two independent volumes for ease of handling the issues raised. This volume contains case, sectoral and alternative studies. The first volume on Development Strategies in Africa: Current Economic, Sociopolitical, and Institutional Trends and Issues provides, except in a few instances, a general overview of the strategies of development as they are practiced in African countries today and the different paths of development that have been followed. The two volumes can be read separately but they make a coherent whole. I feel, however, that this volume by itself does not give the whole picture.

The volume has revised papers (or extracts) from Stephen Adei, Robert S. Browne, Tayo Fashoyin, Michel Doo Kingué, Gwendolyn Mikell, Charles N'Cho-Oguie, Ann Seidman, Chukwuma F. Obidegwu, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, Sylvia Wynter, and myself.

Offering stimulating comments, critiques, and suggestions which clarified the thoughts of the audiences at the colloquium, were David B. Abernethy, Sanjoy Banerjee, Asayehgn Desta, His Excellency Ibrahim Gambari, Yusef Gutema, Peter Heller, Percy Hintzen, Mary Hoover, Jacques Hymans, Bruce F. Johnston, Tetteh Kofi, Pramila Krishnan, Michel Laguerre, Kay Lawson, John Letiche, Morris Lowenstein, Gail McGarrity, David Marvin, Ali A. Mazrui, Ray Miller, Carlos Moore, Joanna Moss, Charles N'Cho-Oguie, Samuel C. Nolutshungu, Thierry Paccoud, Bill Poeschl, Raye Richardson, Joel Samoff, Ismail Serageldin, Dwight Simpson, Elliott P. Skinner, Saul Steier, George Treichel, Sylvia Wynter, Carlene Young, and many others.
