Innovation for Sustainable Integrated Development in Africa Edited by Angathevar Baskaran & Mammo Muchie (HB)


Innovation for Sustainable Integrated Development in Africa Edited by Angathevar Baskaran & Mammo Muchie (HB)


Product Description

The contributions in this edited book reflect analytically and critically on how innovation and development in Africa like the rest of the Global South has been evolving differently from its origin in the developed world and the East Asian Tiger economies.


"Angathever Baskaran and Mammo Muchie have successfully brought together cutting-edge research on the pertinent issues of African unity and indeed pan-Africanism and African Renaissance, linking these with the overarching necessity of endogenous technological smart innovation for continental self-improvement. What is delivered is a timely volume of essays that anchor Africa at the centre of planetary decolonization of the 21st century and the Fourth Industrial Revolution.’’
--Sabelo J. Ndlovu-Gatsheni, Professor and Chair of Epistemologies of the Global South, University of Bayreuth, Germany

“This book brings together renowned scholars for new knowledge production on science, technology and innovation. A much needed scholarly intervention to further discourses, policy and practice on uniting and developing Africa”.
--Cheryl Hendricks, Professor, University of Johannesburg and Director of the African Institute of South Africa and the Human Science Research Council (AISA/HSRC)

“Research and scholarly insights on innovation and the Global South are all-too-rare, making this wonderful new book a most welcome arrival. The book is rich and diverse, providing a valuable empirical resource from across the continent. This novel empirical material is expertly framed by the editors within notions of a strong and renascent Africa, generating much-needed and well-founded hope”.
--Professor Rebecca Boden, Research Director, New Social Research Programme, Tampere University, Finland

“The subject of science and innovation as an impetus for Africa’s pursuit of full sovereignty and freedom is one that is in need of revisiting. This is because for Africa, innovation is both a response to the contemporary demand for progress and a way to undo neocolonial ramifications on human development. This book is an excellent contribution in forging new ways of redeeming Africans from the curse of Berlin and its implications on their quality of life. It is a must read for those interested in a rising Africa. Aluta continua”.
--Siphamandla Zondi, Professor in Politics and International Relations at the University of Johannesburg and Chair of the South African BRICS Think Tank
