About The Book
Development in Unity Volume I, the first of a three-Volume scholarly series, is a compilation of research works and other exploits spanning over four decades written by Daasebre Professor (Emeritus) Oti Boateng, an eminent African Traditional Ruler, a global statistician and professional economist, to revolutionize development thinking and inspire a new order of development.
In this exposition, the author seeks to blend scholarship and culture as mutually-inclusive prerequisites to draw lessons and models in addressing pertinent development challenges that face humankind, particularly in Africa and regions of growing economies.
The book espouses the concept of community development from a cultural perspective and inspires a new model of community development from a root-based approach which represents a major paradigm shift from the traditional top-down approach to development. This community development model would essentially change the current global approach and inspire a new debate on community development which would make it a desirable blueprint for community development practitioners and students of development across the world.
The book is filled with life-tested and leadership lessons to inspire a new development order and intellectual assertiveness and provides a useful and rare source of material for academic institutions, Chief Executives, diplomats, researchers, lawmakers, and other officials in both public and private organizations.
