Telecommunications in Africa
Telecommunications is becoming an essential infrastructure in the global economy. The electronic flow of information around the world favors those nations that have invested in the technology to participate in this global commerce. Bringing together experts on Africa, this book provides a comprehensive view of what individual African countries are doing to build a telecommunications capability. Special attention is paid to telecommunications as a link in the chain of the regional development process. The editor, Eli Noam, is an internationally known authority on telecommunications, and this book is the latest in a group of similar works that survey telecommunications in major regions of the world. This work will appeal to students and professors of telecommunications, international telecommunications companies, and country governments in Africa.

Telecommunications in Africa is a welcome addition to the very scarce literature on African telecommunications. Both its breadth and quality of content are admirable. * Journal of Communication *
