about

How come Africa is so underdeveloped when it is one of the richest continents on earth? The present volume is an attempt to theorise Africa's under-]development with a view to providing a sustainable, enduring framework of operations that will arrest the predicament of the continent while taking it forward from its current passivity. The volume rethinks and re-imagines a number of externally imposed problematic mechanisms used (un-)consciously in Africa, with the intention of raising awareness and fostering critical thinking in scholars of African development. The book is a pacesetter on how to think and research Africa's under-]development. It is also an invaluable asset for social scientists, policy makers, development practitioners, civil society activists and politicians.

Munyaradzi Mawere is a Professor at Great Zimbabwe University. He holds a PhD in Social Anthropology and Master's Degrees in Philosophy and in Development Studies. He is author of more than 35 books and over 150 publications.
