Following independence, most countries in Africa sought to develop,
but their governments pursued policies that actually undermined
their rural economies. Examining the origins of Africa's "growth
tragedy," "Markets and States in Tropical Africa" has for decades
shaped the thinking of practitioners and scholars alike. Robert H.
Bates's analysis now faces a challenge, however: the revival of
economic growth on the continent. In this edition, Bates provides a
new preface and chapter that address the seeds of Africa's recovery
and discuss the significance of the continent's success for the
arguments of this classic work.
