Abstract:Students of Africa's political economy are concerned with a cluster of crucial issues and relationship, such as underdevelopment and class formation, dependence and the distribution of wealth, modes of production and limited participation. This review seeks to examine the major concepts and contributors in this burgeoning style of analysis, which attempts itself to identify and explain 'chains of historical causation' through critical, comparative and historical scholarship of the variety advocated by Richard Harris (Preface, p. vii in Harris, R., (Ed.), The Political Economy of Africa, Cambridge, Mass. 1975): Introduction - Towards a political economy for Africa - Africa and the world system - Prospects for, and potential of a, political economy of the State in Africa - Transnational integration and internal inequalities - The political economy of African regionalism; subimperialism and semi-industrialization - Towards self-reliance or counter-dependence.
