Lion Cubs? Lessons from Africa?s Success Stories. Contrary to what documentary-makers would have one believe, not every African country is riven by famine or civil war. Out of the headlines, several have been doing surprisingly well, growing their economies and building stable, responsible governments. How real are these successes? How were they achieved? And what can Western donors and other African governments learn from them? Policy Exchange?s Lion Cubs? Lessons from Africa?s Success Stories brings together an international group of contributors to explore these questions in four outspoken country case studies.
