by bill KIRKMAN, a former Africa Correspondent of The Times who is now Secretary of the University of Cambridge Appointments Board and a Fellow of University College.

Mr Kirkman looks at some developments in Africa since the coming of independence. While accepting that many things have gone wrong, he considers that the traditional viewpoint adopted by many observers misunderstands the nature of Africa's problems and ignores some of her very real achievements.
