Product Description

Sub-Saharan Africa is no longer a troubled ‘dark continent.

’ Most of its constituent countries are now enjoying significant economic growth and political progress. The new Africa has begun to banish the miseries of the past, and appears ready to play an important role in world affairs. Thanks to shifts in leadership and governance, an African renaissance could be at hand. Yet the road ahead is not without obstacles. As world renowned expert on African affairs, Robert Rotberg, expertly shows, Africa today maybe poised to deliver real rewards to its long suffering citizens but it faces critical new crises as well as abundant new opportunities. Africa Emerges draws on a wealth of empirical data to explore the key challenges Africa must overcome in the coming decades. From peacekeeping to health and disease, from energy needs to education, this illuminating analysis diagnoses the remaining impediments Africa will need to surmount if it is to emerge in 2050 as a prosperous, peaceful, dynamic collection of robust large and small nations. Africa Emerges offers an unparalleled guide for all those interested in the dynamics of modern Africa’s political, economic, and social development.

Product Reviews


"Rotberg's contribution is timely and reflects the decades of work he has done on the continent." LSE Review of Books "As world renowned expert on African affairs Robert Rotberg expertly shows, Africa may be poised to deliver real rewards to its long suffering citizens but it faces critical new crises." Africa Confidential "Rotberg's work is an elegant tour de force, sweeping all contemporary Africa into its view and establishing not just the continent's well-known faults but the real hopes for its future. Honest and provocative, Rotberg has combined deep knowledge with real common sense." Stephen Chan, School of Oriental and African Studies "Robert Rotberg has been one of the leading chroniclers of sub-Saharan Africa for decades. Africa Emerges is a comprehensive book that manages to survey a continent while being sensistive to nuance. Rotberg in an optimistic but unromantic manner paints a possible future for African countries that would, if adopted, transform the lives of tens of millions of people." Jeffrey Herbst, Colgate University "The book provides a useful and informative insight into many developments that have had a positive effect upon millions of African people."Political Studies Review
