Manufacturing Africa

Edited by Roger C. Riddell

  • Description
  • Reviews
The team of authors see this book as a contribution to lifting the standard of debate and towards restarting in-depth comparative research.
Concentrates on the seven countries which between them (excluding South Africa) account for 60 per cent of total manufacturing in sub-Saharan Africa. The contributors look at the role of manufacturing and industry in the development of these countries, arguing that future prosperity could be enhanced by a three-pronged approach to industrialisation.

"This study is undoubtedly the most significant work on the manufacturing industry in sub-Saharan Africa to be published in the last decade - or indeed any decade ..." James Cobbe, AFRICA TODAY
"This is an excellent book for those with an interest in African studies and manufacturing development. Its publication is timely, coming at the close of the 1980s which witnessed a decline in Africa's manufacturing growth rates, viewed from both historical and cross-sectional planes. -" Ron Matthews, AFRICAN AFFAIRS
