520    A deepening ecological crisis is rearing its head in sub-
       Saharan Africa, as it faces a myriad of challenges in 
       regards to the development of its energy sector. The 
       'dirty now and clean up later' approach to the environment
       has a strong appeal, particularly because it is often 
       thought of as the last place to try to edge in another 
       priority - especially if that priority is perceived by 
       many to be an economic luxury. Asuelime and Okem bring 
       together a team of specialist contributors who investigate
       to what extent sub-Saharan Africa has displayed foresight 
       or politico-economic integrity. The book shows the state's
       ability to meet the demands of provision of energy in sub-
       Saharan Africa has led to heavy investments in 
       infrastructure, transmission and distribution of energy to
       the citizens. However, the inefficiencies, corruption and 
       unhealthy bureaucratic challenges that accompany this have
       led urgent problems, which will be thoroughly explored in 
       this book. The Political Economy of Energy in Sub-Saharan 
       Africa will be of interest to students and scholars of 
       African Studies, Development Studies, political science 
       and environment.
