Reviews

"This book deals with an extremely important, topical and under-researched issue, namely economic relations between Africa and Japan in general and Japanese foreign economic assistance to Africa in particular. Furthermore, this is a topic on which, to this day, very few African scholars - with the notable exception of Kweku Ampiah and Sunday Agbi - have done any serious research at all." - Guy Martin, Professor of Political Science, Winston-Salem State University, Winston-Salem, NC
