A Note from the Editors: Africa: A Land in Disarray

Chinn, M. David; Hashmi, Sohail H.
April 1983
Harvard International Review;Apr1983, Vol. 5 Issue 6, p4
The authors reflect on the endless political, economic and social problems in Africa. Independent nations of Black Africa still failed to achieve political stability and democracy despite its continuing efforts. The authors projected that Africa's economic prospects for the immediate future appear bleak. Their projection is based on the droughts, decline in demand for Africa's exports, and the reluctance of the West to lend assistance.
