Description - The Advance of African Capital by Tom Forrest
This work provides a detailed, extensive account of medium- and large-scale African business. It examines the growth of enterprise in Nigeria, giving profiles of Nigeria's key entrepreneurs and describing the strategies and patterns of accumulation they have employed from the colonial period to the present day. Through case studies from different locations and communities, the text discusses the various forms of capital accumulation and sectoral advances in trade, transport, manufacure, agriculture, finance and other service activities. These cases are set within the context of changing economic opportunities, shifts in policy and power, relations with foreign capital and differing attitudes towards private business.
