Abstract:

"African Perspectives on Governance brings together the views of a group of East and West African scholars on a range of issues relating to how African countries are being governed. In contrast to most other publications on governance, which tend to reflect primarily the views of the international donor community, this book provides a refreshing African perspective on these issues. It is critical in its approach but the authors speak with authority based on both personal experience and research on the African continent."

"Each subject is covered comparatively with reference to both East and West Africa. This book lends itself to courses on African politics or more general education courses on African development issues. It should also be of relevance to analysts of African governance and development in governments, inter-governmental and non-governmental organizations."--Jacket.
