Multinational Firms in Africa
Multinational Firms in Africa
Edited by Carl Widstrand
Africana Publishing Company, 1976, 425 pp.

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.
