"This Handbook represents a distinctively authoritative compendium of expertise addressing contemporary Africa. Attention focuses on the diverse conditions prevailing today, explanations of how they have arisen and are understood in theoretical and practical terms, and what future prospects are likely to hold. The attention to African perspectives, often distinguished from those of outsiders, as manifest in most development theory, international policy discourse and policy, is particularly welcome. The essays are clearly written and will provide an invaluable guide to those wishing to understand Africa and its place in the world." - David Simon, Director of Mistra Urban Futures, Chalmers, Gothenburg, Sweden and Professor of Development Geography, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK
