Emerging Africa> describes the too-often-overlooked positive changes that have taken place in much of Africa since the mid-1990s. In 17 countries, five fundamental and sustained breakthroughs are making old assumptions increasingly untenable:
  • The rise of democracy brought on by the end of the Cold War and apartheid
  • Stronger economic management
  • The end of the debt crisis and a more constructive relationship with the international community
  • The introduction of new technologies, especially mobile phones and the Internet
  • The emergence of a new generation of leaders.


With these significant changes, the countries of emerging Africa seem poised to lead the continent out of the conflict, stagnation, and dictatorships of the past. The countries discussed in the book are Botswana, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Ethiopia, Ghana, Lesotho, Mali Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, São Tomé and Principe, Seychelles, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia.
