This book compiles the in-depth, background research that informed the publication Boom and Dislocation (Third World Network- Africa, 2001). The contributors explore the role of mining in the development of mineral endowed economies, continent-wide in Africa. They consider the role of World Bank, IMF and bilateral lenders; the environmental issues unleashed by the mining boom, and possible technological solutions; and the social conflicts engendered by mining in Africa.
