In a forthright and uncompromising demeanour, Olúfémi Táíwò explores Africa’s hostility towards modernity and the way that hostility has impeded financial improvement and social and political transformation. What has to alter for Africa with a purpose to reply to the demanding situations of modernity and globalization? Táíwò insists that Africa can renew itself in simple terms by way of absolutely enticing with democracy and capitalism and via mining its untapped highbrow assets. whereas many won't trust Táíwò’s positions, they are going to be not able to disregard what he says. this can be a daring exhortation for Africa to come back into the twenty first century.
