Abstract:This book discusses the impact of globalization on Africa, concentrating on opportunities for economic growth, development and social transformation. Contributions to this collection assert that for Africa, globalization is a counter-revolutionary movement that is stalling the drive of the continent's societies to transform themselves into developed and prosperous entities. The book consists of three parts, each linking globalization to specific themes: Part I, Africa in world history, has contributions by Samir Amin (on Africa's political economy), Thandika Mkandawire (on Africa's unfinished agenda), Severine M. Rugumamu (on regional cooperation) and B.I. Logan (on State and resource exploitation). Part II, Trade and development issues, includes contributions by Trudi Hartzenberg (on regionalism and the SADC) and Moses Tekere (on ACP/Africa - EU trade agreements). Part III, Identity and liberation politics, contains contributions by Patricia McFadden (on power, sexuality and patriarchy), Cyril I. Obi (on identity, rights and power in Nigeria's Niger Delta), Kwame Boafo-Arthur (on NEPAD, neo-liberalism and human security) and Horace Campbell (on Africa's search for renewal).
