Editorial Description

This work provides a comprehensive study of African emigrants in the United States and the role they may play in contributing to Africa's development in the 1990s. Apraku focuses on four main questions: Who are the skilled African emigrants employed in the United States? Why did they come to America? What potential role can they play in Africa's development? and What types of reforms are needed to allow them to contribute to Africa's development? The book also addresses contemporary African issues, such as food production, privatization, economic integration, democratization, and economic aid.
