Altered States, Ordinary Miracles
Some chapters tackle big ideas: factors that shaped Africa’s post-colonial history, and factors shaping "the new Africa" presently emerging. Other chapters tackle the histories of individual nations: Angola, Burundi, Congo, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. Throughout, great storytelling deploys colorful anecdotes to nail down informed historical judgments.
Quantities are limited.
