Description

"Thoughtful and original...This well-argued books makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of the new--and not so new--dynamics that are currently being played out in Africa. It has important implications for all observers of Africa's politics and international relations."--Ian Taylor "An innovative and provocative book ...wide ranging and engaging, it offers a fresh and challenging interpretation of key issues of concern in contemporary Africa."--Marcus Power. Is globalization good for Africa? Padraig Carmody explores the evolving nature and impact of globalization throughout the continent, as China, the US, and other economic powers exert their influence.Drawing especially on the cases of Chad, Sudan, and Zambia, Carmody considers whether the resource curse that has for so long plagued Africa can become a blessing. He also evaluates the impact of the information technology revolution and the recent global economic slowdown. In the context of carefully articulated historical dynamics, he provocatively assesses the new role of Africa in the global economy.show more
