In Africa's third liberation, their most recent collaboration, Greg Mills and Jeff Herbst bring to bear the full breadth and depth of their expertise on Africa and political economy to provide a refreshingly fact-based, clear-eyed, comparative analysis of what works and what doesn't when it comes to promoting economic growth in developing countries. By highlighting lessons learned from other regions, the book provides insights on the various types of opportunities current and future generations of African leaders may have in order to unleash the continent's tremendous potential and move toward a new era of growth and job production. No longer hopeless and helpless, but rising. That's the conclusion after a decade of growth in Africa. Africa's third liberation vividly illustrates how this growth can be consolidated, accelerated and translated into development.
