Abstract:This book examines the debate on the privatization of public utilities in sub-Saharan Africa, concentrating on electricity and water. After a Foreword by Terry McKinley, the Director of International Poverty Centre, Brasilia, UNDP, and an Introduction and Overview (anonymous), Part One takes a theoretical look at the Privatization Experiment and contains several essays by Ben Fine and Kate Bayliss.
