Description

Combining ethnographic and historical perspectives, this study is the most detailed, most extensive account of medium- and large-scale African business yet published. It examines the strategies and patterns employed by business people from the colonial period to the present day and provides profiles of Nigeria's key entrepreneurs. Not only a valuable digest of business activities, this important study also challenges existing views about African enterprise and is highly relevant to policy-makers concerned with economic development.show more
