oa Africa Insight - Africa at a glance, 1960-1985

Volume 15, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0256-2804



This special edition of Africa Insight presents a statistical survey of developments since the year 1960 when one-third of the continent's countries became independent. This quarter of a century of experience inevitably invites reflection on past and future trends. The more so because 1985 also marks a century of profound and often traumatic change since the Berlin Conference of 1884-1885. Whereas a great deal of attention is focused on Africa's economic failures and political instability, a factual compendium such as this serves to remind readers of the positive achievements which need to be noted.
