The governor of the Central Bank of Kenya writes realistically of Africa's need to solve its own problems-and give population control high priority. He also argues strongly that development must flow from an ideology of nationalism within African countries and culminate in continental economic cooperation building on sub-regional groupings. While he is undoubtedly right about the necessity for regional cooperation in Africa's quest for self-reliance, economic Pan-Africanism appears a very distant prospect.
