Author Info

  • Bates, R-H

Abstract

The study of development in Africa has informed the thinking of development specialists. Africa's experience has been cited to underscore the significance of politics to the economics of development. A reading of the literature discloses a paucity of systematic evidence about the nature of political systems in Africa, much less about the relationship between fovernance and economic performance.
