The handbook presents an extensive new overview of African development - past, present and future. It addresses key core themes and topics which are pertinent to the continent’s development – including sections on history, health and food, politics, economics, rural and urban development and development policy and practice. The volume draws on the expertise of over 60 of the world’s leading scholars to provide a detailed and up-to-date analysis of the key opportunities and challenges which confront Africa, and how such issues are being addressed. Arranged by key themes, the handbook provides not only an historical understanding of the past, but also political perspectives of the future. The chapters provide critically informed analyses of their topics by drawing upon the latest conceptual viewpoints and applied experiences in Africa in a form of case studies to offer a comprehensive examination of the opportunities, challenges, key debates and future prospects. The handbook is an invaluable state-of-the-art overview and reference concerning many different aspects of Africa’s development, which should be of interest to academics in all fields of African Studies, and also academics and students working in cognate disciplines such as development studies, geography, history, politics and economics.
