Development Strategies in Africa: Current Economic, Socio-Political, and Institutional Trends and Issues

By Aguibou Y. Yansane | Go to book overview

Preface

The chapters 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 1990's."

The materials of the colloquium are arranged into two independent volumes for ease of handling the issues raised. This volume, except for a few instances, provides 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 second volume, on Prospects of Recovery and Sustainable Development in Africa, contains case, sectoral, or alternative studies. The two volumes can be read separately, but they form 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 His Excellency Ibrahim Gambari, Reginald Herbold Green, Peter Heller, Ali A. Mazrui, Sam C. Nolutshungu, Ismail Serageldin, Elliott P. Skinner, the World Bank Social Dimensions of Structural Adjustment Unit, and myself.

Offering stimulating comments, critiques, and suggestions, which clarified the thoughts of the audience at the colloquium were David B. Abernethy, Stephen Adei, Sanjoy Banerjee, Robert S. Browne, Asayehgn Desta, Yusef Gutema, Mary Hoover, Jacques Hymans, Bruce F. Johnston, Tetteh Kofi, Pamila Krishnan, Kay Lawson, John Letiche, Morris Lowenstein, David Marvin, Gwendolyn Mikell, Ray Miller, Carlos Moore, Joanna Moss, Charles N'Cho-Oguie, Thierry Paccoud, Bill Poeschl, Raye Richardson, Joel Samoff, Ann Seidman, Dwight Simpson, Saul Steier, George Treichel, Sylvia Wynter, Carlene Young, and many others.
