Editorial Description

One of the enduring characteristics of post-independence Africa has been the inability to fashion stable, meaningful political economies. Material progress has been slow and painful for most people. Akwasi Osei's study, a reinterpretation of forty years of Ghana politics, shows that, ideological differences notwithstanding, the successive regimes have adopted remarkably consistent policies. They have been constrained by the nature of the Ghanaian state.
