Inhaltsangabe: In Africa, children and young people face crisis. Child death rates are rising and educational enrolment is falling. Children are victims in every war. Millions of young Africans are contracting HIV and AIDS. Neglected by society, Africa's youth are attracted to militarism and militant religion. YOUNG AFRICA pioneers new thinking on the rights of children and young people in Africa, and offers new approaches to tackling the violation of the rights of young Africans, and arguing that the world will benefit from investing in Africa's children.
Rezension: ... Ghana turned from what was widely perceived as one of Africa's most militant to one that was regarded by the IMF and World Bank as the region's star pupil ... initial reports after nearly 18 months in power suggest that (the post-Rawlings regime) is having as little success dealing with Ghana's endemic economic problems as Rawlings' government did in its later years. If anyone wants to know why this is the case, Hutchful's book is an excellent starting point. The reader will also find much here of wider relevance to Africa's continuing economic and development quandaries. In short, this is a tour de force, which can be read with much profit not only by the Ghana specialist but also by those more widely interested in attempts at structural adjustment in Africa. - Jeff Haynes in JOURNAL OF COMMONWEALTH & COMPARATIVE STUDIES I found the book to be a finely balanced record of events and a convincing treatise. - Mike Bristow in DEMOCRACY & DEVELOPMENT
