Many of the problems in Africa today, including widespread poverty
and civil unrest, can be traced to the continents legacy of bad
governance. In the post-independence period, authoritarian
strongmen took control of many countries, enriching themselves and
their cronies by exploiting the peoples labor and their countrys
resources. In recent years, however, a growing number of African
states have embraced democratic principles and established
transparent and open governments. In this book the noted Africa
scholar Dr. Robert Rotberg examines the current state of governance
and leadership in Africa. He discusses the various types of
government found in the continent, clearly showing the correlation
between the quality of a countrys leadership and the quality of
life enjoyed by that countrys people.
