This ambitious, two-volume study is the latest entry in the series of African development yearbooks compiled and editted by a team of researchers at Germany's University of Bremen. This work, volume 8 of the overall series, looks in great detail at Africa's prospects and challenges in responding to the current trend toward globalization. It includes analytical essays on Africa's global competitiveness, export prospects, investment trends, technology acquisition and experiences towards regional integration within Africa. There also are numerous country case studies (Angola, Botswana, Ghana, Libya, Mozambique, Senegal, South Africa and others). In addition, the collection includes reports on policy changes in Africa, the impact of globalization on local communities and social groups (especially women), book reviews and important documents from African organizations.
