African Economic History

African Economic History

Internal Development and External Dependency

Book - 1987
Rate this:

The first comprehensive study of Africa's economic history, beginning with the origins of domesticated food production and concluding with the attainment of political independence. The author draws insights from both liberal and Marxist approaches without adopting either one. The book's particular strengths lie in Austen's balance of cultural and geographical areas, his analysis of trade and commerce, and his portrayal of emerging regional economies.
