Africa Tomorrow

By Edem Kodjo
Continuum, 1987
301 pp. $22.50

The former secretary general of the Organization of African Unity (who was finance minister and foreign minister of Togo) meditates here on Africa's prospects, drawing on analogies from European history. Visionary but realistic, he makes an impassioned plea for breaking down the sovereign borders established at the Congress of Berlin and the formation of a new order in Africa utilizing Western technology and traditional culture. Looking at the evolution of civilizations throughout history, he also calls for expanding populations and the acquisition of continental military, including nuclear, power.
