Though the fact gets little international attention, in recent years countries across Africa have seen unprecedented economic growth, a boom that stretches back to 2000 and has made a huge difference in the lives of citizens in countless nations. Nonetheless, the continent still faces major development challenges. This book brings together a sterling roster of contributors to analyze present and future development in Africa, post-Millennium Development Goals. It presents twelve major public policy conversations that they deem essential to Africa’s future growth and success.

Review Quotes
Francis Owusu, Iowa State University
“In exploring the multiple dimensions of the post-2015 development agenda for Africa, this clear, well-structured, and compelling collection by leading African and international scholars offers promising but realistic policy choices for addressing the region’s challenges.”
Diane Elson, University of Essex
“A valuable and wide-ranging discussion of the achievements and challenges of African development that demonstrates the importance of a ‘developmental state’ in enabling Africans to take charge of their own destiny.”
Khabele Matlosa, African Union Commission, Ethiopia
“A refreshing and comprehensive political economy perspective on Africa’s socioeconomic transformation within the post-2015 development agenda. It is a must read for both economists and non-economists who yearn for freedom from the ‘Africa rising’ mantra. A highly compelling and wonderfully readable story.”
