Reviews

"A wake-up call. Its message is simple: look out world, here comesAfrica." Wall Street Journal "Clearly conceived, cleanly structured, tightly written and lucidlyexpressed. A highly readable text." European Voice "Their optimistic analysis of the continent and its inhabitantsshould be read by all who are interested in looking at Africa witha fresh and different perspective." African Security Review "A significant book for those interested in questions of economicand cultural change." The Age "Africa's Moment has the great value of underlining thatAfrica's future is indeed in the hands of Africans." South World "A timely and positive assessment of Africa's prospects foundedupon deep understanding and a distinctive perspective." Paul Collier, University of Oxford "The West is wedded to a retrograde vision of Africa's past andknow nothing of its present, even less of its future. Thisunprecedented book forces revision of that outlook by addressing aworld, just a few decades from now, where one in four human beingswill be African." Keith Hart, University of London
