Ben Wisner makes a case for giving the poor of Africa the means to develop their own future. He shows how a new African renaissance could spring from a radical basic-needs approach. A renaissance which has as its constituent elements environmental sustainability, women's emancipation and social justice, will stand as a refutation of the new, conservative pragmatism popular among development experts.
