Mozambique

Magaia is both a participant in and chronicler of the effects on peasants of struggle in Mozambique. These stories are simply and sparely told yet horrific. Chapter titles include "They Slaughtered Bertana's Husband as if He Were a Goat" and "Pieces of Human Flesh Fell in Belinda's Yard." Magaia describes the brutality of South African-backed guerrilla terrorism, supported apparently to destabilize the region and to drive out successful socialist government. Read with Beah's A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier for the perspective of a forced combatant in Africa's ongoing internal conflicts. ( )
