Description - African Renaissance by Fantu Cheru

How can African countries escape from marginalization, deepening impoverishment and state disintegration in the new era of globalization? The author of this book explores a way beyond the simple state-led versus market-driven approaches to Africa's development. He argues that the international financial institutions must stop their own development and that African countries must work within the reality of globalization to renew democracy and improve governance; invest in education; revitalize agriculture, manage their cities, strengthen regional economic integration, and prevent yet more deadly conflicts. Cheru contends how these options would require commonsense and non-dogmatic approaches; a new generation committed to a new kind of politics; and to synergy between the opportunities of the global economy and rebuilding Africa's economies.
