In the ongoing battle against global poverty, African countries continue to present the greatest challenge. CGD senior fellow Todd Moss' new book African Development offers a comprehensive yet highly accessible introduction to the issues, actors and institutions interacting across the diverse continent. Moss's book covers each of the major economic and political themes, with each chapter organized around three fundamental questions: Where are we now? How did we get to this point?

Africa presents some of the greatest challenges of economic development in the contemporary world. Slow growth, poverty, corruption, debt, and recurring crises have marred the region's economies for decades. Attempts at reform have often had discouraging results, and the sources of the continent's malaise -- and its prospects for revitalization -- are widely contested. Moss elucidates the region's travails and unpacks the often muddled debates over policy and change. Treating both political and economic themes with admirable clarity, he walks the reader briskly through Africa's colonial legacy, the syndrome of personal rule, the economic liabilities of conflict, and the challenges of democratic reform.
