Summary
Africa Now examines the changes which are affecting the whole continent from Algeria to South Africa as the century ends. The relations between citizens and their governments are shown, not only in nationalism, ethnicity and democracy, but also in youth and violence, religious revival and public morality. Policies to start growth, how institutions respond to the informal economy, the diversity of adjustment in agriculture and the constraints on manufacturing; and Africa in the world as reflected in the crisis of the state, regional integration, and the politics of aid effectiveness and of migration. The contributors come from all parts of Africa as well as from outside the continent. Many of them have held senior positions in African governments and in international organizations
