'In this powerfully insightful book Graham Harrison demolishes the conventional wisdom to show how rather than globalisation bypassing Africa it is largely responsible for its current condition ...Vital reading for those wishing to understand the nature and evolution of neoliberal globalisation in Africa.' Padraig Carmody, Trinity College Dublin 'Anyone concerned about the current debate about politics and economy in Africa, and more broadly about how globalisation and neo-liberalism can be understood, and in the ways it operates in the Global South will need to read this book.' Ray Bush, author of Poverty and Neo-Liberalism 'For anybody interested in neoliberalism as a discourse of development, or the effects of neoliberalism in Africa this book is a must read.' Trevor Parfitt, Reader in International Development
