When it was published in 2002, the first edition of African Economic Development offered an authoritative statement about economic growth on the continent. Its multidisciplinary regional studies built an analytic framework that served as a cornerstone of the field for over a decade. The second edition offers a new collection of authoritative articles for a new age.
(Chad, the fifth largest country in Africa, has experience...)
Chad, the fifth largest country in Africa, has experienced great difficulties politically, economically, and socially. During the 1980s and early 1990s, Chad briefly held international attention because of its warring with Libya. This situation underlines Chad's potential for drawing its neighbors Libya, Sudan, Cameroon, and Nigeria in particular and to some degree France and the United States into its conflicts. For this reason alone, diplomats and scholars alike should pay close attention to the pivotal position this former French colony occupies in the heart of Africa. Is Chad the sleeping giant of Africa? What role can we expect of a peaceful Chad in Central Africa? What would be the repercussions if Libya annexed Chad? What kind of role has France played in this conflict? How do the Chadian people deal with this protracted conflict? What is the role of the northern leaders of the country? Are they warlords or committed nationalists? These are some of the questions that Mario Azevedo and Emmanuel Nnadozie raise and answer.
Emmanuel Nnadozie studied at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka and became a Bachelor of Science (with honors) and a Master of Science. He then attended Sorbonne University of Paris and became a Doctor of Philosophy in 1987.
Emmanuel Nnadozie, an economist and development expert, became the Executive Secretary of the African Capacity Building Foundation on December 1, 2013. He came from the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) in Addis Ababa where he worked from 2004 to 2012. His last post at the Commission was Director of Macroeconomic Policy Division and Chief Economist. In addition, Nnadozie was an Adviser to the Executive Secretary of the Commission. Among his major achievements in that role was his successful supervision of the production for four unbroken years of the flagship publication of the Commission, the annual Economic Report on Africa, between 2010 and 2013.
Previously, he was UNECA’s Director of Economic Development and NEPAD Division where he helped to coordinate the assistance of UN agencies to the African Union and its affiliates, including the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) and the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD). This role has made him a notable figure among African organizations as a dependable ally of the continent.
Nnadozie joined the United Nations after a distinguished academic career. He was a Professor of Economics at the Truman State University, formerly Northeast Missouri State University, Kirksville, Missouri, in the United States from 2002 to 2004. Before then, he was Associate Professor from 1994 to 2002, and Assistant Professor from 1989 to 1994. He served for 12 years as the Director of the pre-Doctoral programme at the university until he left in 2004. In addition, he was Visiting Professor at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte from 1996 to 1997.

"My primary motivation for writing is the need to provide information and share knowledge. My writing process begins with the identification of needs in my area of interest - African economic development. I will then conduct research and write up the findings. I have written on issues related to African economic development because I hope to make a contribution, however small, to the development of African countries and the improvement of the quality of life of people of African descent all over the world."
