The edited collection of 22 papers emerged from an international conference on black business in Africa nd the US at Arlington, Texas, in November 1999, sponsored by The Africa Program, which promotes business, educational, and technological relations between Africa and the State of Texas. Rather than pushing any particular theory or economic model, they present the multidimensional facets of business practices among black people in Africa and the US, including resilient old practices, innovation, and adapting to new methods and circumstances. They focus on case or regional studies.
