Reviews are an important aspect of scholarly discussion because they help filter out which works are relevant in the yearly flood of publications and are thus influential in determining how a work is received. The IBR, published again since 1971 as an interdisciplinary, international bibliography of reviews, it is a unique source of bibliographical information. The database contains entries on over 1.2 million book reviews of literature dealing primarily with the humanities and social sciences published in 6,820, mainly European scholarly journals. Reviews of more than 560,000 scholarly works are listed. The database increases every year by 60,000 entries. Every entry contains the following information: On the work reviewed: author, title On the review: reviewer, periodical (year, edition, page, ISSN), language, subject area (in German, English, Italian) Publisher, address of journal

"Orthodox strategies for socio-economic development have failed spectacularly in southern Africa. Neither the developmental state nor neoliberal reform seems able to provide a solution to Africa's problems." "Africa's Development Impasse analyses this failure and explores the potential for alternatives. Examining why Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa have been unable to overcome a debilitating colonial legacy, the book argues that it is time to rethink the political economy of development. Building on the path-breaking work of post-development theorists, Stefan Andreasson navigates a new way through the current development impasse." "This important fusion of theory with empirical case studies is essential reading for students of development politics and Africa." --Book Jacket.
