Summary Internal conflicts, dictatorship, and economic disintegration characterized the first twenty-five years of Uganda’s independence from British colonial rule, which culminated in the reign of Idi Amin and a violent civil war. The country has since achieved an astounding turnaround of stability and growth. Advancing the Ugandan Economy is a first-had look at the remarkable policy changes that took place from 1986 to 2012 and their effect in contrast with the turbulent events after independence.--p.
