Pilgrims of the Night is the first book of critical essays to combine the expertise of political leadership with
economic, creative, environmental and academic analyses in examining the continuing developmental challenges and opportunities facing African development in the 21st century. African is a continent on a pilgrimage to stabilize and renew partnerships with the developed and developing world – a pilgrimage its people have to make to ensure its precious natural resources and a huge market of over a billion people constantly modify its trade and economic relations not only with Europe and North America but with the newly emerging economies of China, India, Brazil, South Korea and others. This Anthology reflects this constantly changing position by African experts and world-class analysts best qualified to make them. They include the Nigerian Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka, Frances Cairncross the Rector of Exeter College, Oxford University, former Ghanaian President John Agyekum Kufuor and Architect Elsie Owusu among others.
