Description

This collection of six essays by leading African authorities provides an evaluation of the impact of the structural adjustment programmes of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund on Sub-Saharan Africa, and the alternative avenues for resolving the continent's economic and political crisis. The volume, which also contains discussion of the essays by other academics and policy-makers, represents a thorough examination of the change in official policy on the poorest and most marginalized of the world's regions. Essays include: "The Dimensions of the African Crisis" (Adebayo Adedeji); "The Legitimacy Crisis of the State" (Claud Ake); "The Peasant Question and the Contemporary Crisis" (Mahmood Mamdani); "What Next for African Women?" (Marie-Angelique Savan); "The View from the World Bank" (Dunstan Wai); and "The Social Dimensions of Structural Adjustment" (Sheila Smith).
