Introduction: Africa in the Twenty-First Century
This chapter presents a contextual study of varying aspects of the developmental enterprise in contemporary African society. It takes a brief look at various challenges confronting the process of transforming Africa from a dependent entity into a self-reliant society. The chapter observes that a conspicuous foundational flaw in tackling developmental challenges in Africa can be traced to the historical absence of an endogenous emancipating policy framework recognising the historical specificities of the African people.
