Tauris.. 1990.. Maps, xii + 231pp, index, dustjacket slight tear, otherwise a good copy. "Cockcroft explores the nature of pre-colonial societies in detail. He shows that in spite of the deep impact of the colonial period on African society, pre-colonial institutions have continued to be the chief determining factors in most African political systems. The inward-looking tendencies they encourage have frustrated attempts ot integrate Africa's economies into the world economy. This accounts for the apparent failure of many African development programmes. In contrast to many current negative assessments of the African situation, Cockcroft argues that Africa's economies are developing. This is not because of aid programmes and government initiatives, but through the efforts of small-scale farmers and urban artisans. It is with them that the key to Africa's economic and political future lies. This book is a challenging and courageous assessment of the impact of the old Africa on the present and the future. It should interest everyone with an interest in contemporary Africa." Taken from blurb. .
