A decade and counting into the twenty- ?rst century, business in Africa remains a scarcely charted arena that calls out for much more critical exploration and illumination. The undoubted scholarly potentials of the topic area and the continent?s economic possibilities continue to excite and challenge. This book showcases informed commentary on the contem-porary realities of business practice in Africa. It also offers insightful perspectives on what might become of African economies and African businesses if appropriate transformational strategies were to be embraced, sustained and institutionalized. The book delivers on the vision of providing a volume of compelling academic, managerial and policy signi?cance, and an authoritative reference source that re?ects and resonates with ongoing changes in Africa, as the continent `strikes out? more con?dently towards effective integration with the global economy. This book is organized in two parts, the first of which illuminates African business environments, contexts, and institutions. Part II covers strategies, ideas and initiatives for transforming African businesses and the underpinning institutions, environments and economies.
