“In this very interesting and illuminating book, Otobo makes a significant contribution to improving our understanding of Africa’s development performance. He offers a new way of looking at the development prospects of individual countries by focusing on the three structural constraints which have impeded their past performance and still cast a long shadow over their development prospects. This book should be a required reading by African policy makers and students of African affairs” said Lalla Aicha Ben-Barka, former Assistant Director-General for Africa at UNESCO.
