Review Quotes
Journal of Retracing Africa
“Displacement Economies in Africa, an anthology edited by Amanda Hammar, breaks new theoretical ground in its introduction as it examines the troubling question of displacement economies that result from Africa’s vast and apocalyptic range of upheavals, stemming from wars, misrule, ecological devastation, and allied challenges that confront its nascent nation-states. . . . This is a well-packaged and insightful anthology, and it richly fulfills the claims of the introduction in covering displacement, especially the internally displaced, from a very rich field of empirical investigations.”
