Montague Yudelman is persuaded that if Africans south of the Sahara are to satisfy their growing aspirations, they must first expand their present exchange economy.

Focusing on Southern Rhodesia, where a recent governmental program highlights many institutional problems of development to be found in underdeveloped countries, the author analyzes policies, programs, and traditions that foster or inhibit the productivity of African agriculture.
