Chapter reports on different countries in africa. Mostly the politics of how things went wrong. Some ideas
  jhawn | Jul 31, 2017 |
Blaine Harden's book usefully lets Africans talk about Africa with a central theme being the manipulation of religious and tribal differences (and foreign aid) to construct the shaky platforms from which African Big Men dominate their countries.
However, it doesn't have to be this way. He shows the functioning democracy of Botswana with it's respect for the law and equal opportunity and the basic forcing of the right to free speech by the Nigerian people on their successive governments (even if the economy remains a shambles).
This is a really great book about Africa. ( )
