Analysts of the global economy often dismiss Africa as a serious figure, while the perspective of those who don't, is often dominated by Afro-pessimism. This text is one of the first attempts to locate Africa squarely within the theoretical debates on political, economic and cultural globalisation. Analysed within are the implications of globalisation for democratisation and human rights within Africa, Africa's performance in the global economy and the impact of African culture globally.
