This book is a critical review of the theory and practice of development in Africa during the period 1965-1994. The author identifies six leading issues in African development: economic reform; democratization; environmental degradation; poverty reduction; indebtedness; and civil strife. By way of addressing these leading issues, Dr. Deng calls for the formulation of an African model of sustainable development, which would ensure consistency between development policy and African thought, heritage and institutions. Deng proposes on integrative African model of sustainable development, which consists of four key elements – consensual democratic system of governance; agriculture-led economic growth; social integration; and ecological harmony.
