Authors: John W. Forje (University of Yaounde II-Soa, Yaounde, Cameroon) 
Book Description:
The subject of a ‘developmental state and the challenges of governance’ remains topical, and is hoped that the views expressed here will put the various issues firmly at the centre of the debate, calling for transparency, social justice, the rule of law and accountability agenda that sows the seeds of a genuine renewal of state and society’s role in embodying and shaping democracy on the African continent. There is need for building capacities for sustainable development to bring Africa in line with global development. This book discusses the need and political and developmental renewal in Africa by presenting and examining a series of essays on the topic. (Imprint: Novinka Books)
