Schwarz-Weisse Mythen - Afrika und der Entwicklungspolitische Diskurs

Black and white myths - Africa and the development policy debate

By Dirk Hansohm and Robert Kappel - Munster - Hamburg - Lit 1993 - 2 - Revised edition - 1994 - Bremer Afrika Studien, Bd 5 ISBN 3-8947--699-2

The African crisis is primarily one of global concepts of development policy, the authors maintain. The discussion of African development problems is abstract and dichotomic and the 'truths' which emerge from it are often no more than ideological prejuoices which neither explain the reality nor open the way for solutions. This book attempts to highlight the central myths in the discussion and suggest practical alternatives.
