State of the continent: A Mid-Century Assessment of Political Performance in Africa
Cameroon: Spears Media Press , 2018. 300 p. Soft. ISBN 9781942876342.  In English
What precisely is the state of the African continent today? Depending on one’s perspective, the answer may either dwell on Africa’s recent economic and political accomplishments or focus on the long-standing single-story of failure, disaster and eternal dictatorships. This book provides a nuanced, forceful and balanced assessment of Africa’s political and economic performance since independence. While acknowledging Africa’s tragic pitfalls, dating to the transatlantic slave trade and colonialism, State of the Continent skillfully argues that theories associated with the dependency school are no longer enough to explain the continent’s failures in governance and economic performance.
