A student textbook on African geography that takes an original and relevant approach, "Poetry in Africa" examines the extent, nature and distribution of material poverty in tropical Africa, and isolates the factors that contribute to this characteristic condition of its peoples. The book begins by distinguishihg between poor countries and poor individuals or families. It then reviews the environmental, demographic and political context of African poverty. Subsequent chapters focus on food and famine, the wider rural economy and urban poverty. The final chapter considers the external economic relationships of African nations. This book is designed to meet the need for a problem-oriented and solidly relevant adoptable text for undergraduate geography courses on Africa and will also be supplementary reading for students of politics, economics, development and international relations.
