‘African Economic Development: Evidence, Theory, Policy’ listed on Project syndicate commentators best reads in 2020
Many books have been written about the complexities, challenges, and prospects of the African continent.

Their book would make for rewarding read any time, but particularly now that the world is preparing for the post-pandemic recovery.
