The economies of almost all African countries are in a state of crisis, and in some cases actual disintegration. This is a crisis not of natural disasters, but of human making, and in dramatic detail, Professor Onimode shows how this is now reflected in African countries' contracting economies, soaring unemployment, mounting external debts, and periodic outbreaks of famine. He examines the role of multinational corporations, the export of capital, and class and economic distortions.
