A superior collection-best on concrete data about multinational corporate penetration of Africa (including individual studies of Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, and Nigeria). Proposals for African achievement of independence and control over those firms wax vague and repetitive-the confusion of the economists about how to overcome dependency seems to parallel that of the host countries.
