Summary
Author, Richard Dowden, combines a novelist's gift for atmosphere with the unblinking scholar's grasp of historical change to produce one of the most compelling and revealing accounts of sub-Saharan Africa yet. His experiences there required him to reevaluate all he had been taught to believe, and his landmark book enables its readers to see and understand this miraculous continent in a new light, too
Summary
Dowden spins tales of cults and commerce in Senegal and traditional spirituality in Sierra Leone; analyzes the impact of oil and the Internet on Nigeria and aid on Sudan; and examines what has gone so badly wrong in Rwanda and the Congo
