Risk, Rule, and Reason in Africa
In general, Sub-Saharan Africa has produced a notable absence of leadership. Authoritarian political traditions, lack of national identity, underdeveloped middle classes, and widespread economic distress are among the sweeping, impersonal forces cited as factors that produce poor leader after poor leader in Sub-Saharan Africa. This paper instead takes a micro-level view of leadership. Without denying that macro-level social and economic factors bear on leaders' behavior, Goldsmith looks at these people as individuals and speculates about the incentives created by their environment.
