Translated by David Fernbach

The 21st century will be the century of Africa. This continent
was once seen as empty, rural, animist, poor, and forgotten by the
world. Now, fifty years after independence, it is full to bursting,
urban and monotheist. If poverty and violence are still rampant,
economic growth has taken off again and a middle class is
developing. Africa will hold a central place in the big issues
facing the world today. If it once made a ?false start', here
it is back again - in the fast lane.


The West has missed the turnaround of a continent that will no
longer wait for us. How can we best understand it? Demography,
economics, politics, diplomacy, cultures and religions - this book
presents the different facets of this new Africa, which will soon
have a billion people, at the mid point of the most rapid
population boom that humanity has ever known. Without ignoring the
risks of its metamorphosis, it brings to light the forces and hopes
that Africa harbors.
