France has done many notable things in North Africa and has followed a policy of assimilation of the natives into French culture, and in the case of Algeria of political equality with citizens of Metropolitan France. In the Union we have inspected one of the most unpleasant and exacerbated political situations in the world.

Significantly, some of the conclusions are the same: that the West must not ignore Africa, and that what the continent needs most is not guns but education. e., suppression of four-fifths of the people of the country) and it is in some respects the ugliest government I have ever encountered in the free world. hardback, thick octavo, upper hinge cracked but the text block stitching remains sound and the volume is free of marking. From the Sahara in the north, the rainforests of the Congo Basin in Central Africa, the Ethiopian highlands and other mountain ranges, the various rivers and lakes and the savanna of east and southern Africa.

Small dampstain on bottom page corners, cloth modestly dampstained, about very good in a very good worn dust jacket with green faded to brown, short nicks on spine ends and corners. He loves interviewing major figures himself, and in fact my major criticism of the book is that too many pages were spent detailing the time Gunther spent with Dr.

There is only a page on each, and a few pages on FWA, almost as if the author had run out of steam - although I can see how that might be. In overall good-to-very good used condition with minor signs of age, handling and storage - rubbing to edges and dj spine a touch tanned. I am paraphrasing, but near the start Gunther says this is not a book about his travels in Africa, but a description of the contemporary history and politics of Africa.The racial tensions which exist in one section are almost wholly different from those prevailing in another.

In 1942, as a Staff Officer in G2, he was assigned to the section covering the campaign in North Africa, and after the successful termination of that operation he teas sent to Dakar as our Military Observer in French West Africa. Great Britain, France, Belgium, and Portugal, and the systems of governance, even the attitudes towards decolonization would vary.Written with humor, sympathy and a journalist's verve, it cuts back and forth from personal anecdotes (a spell with Idi Amin's goons, an Ethiopian air raid in the disputed Ogaden) to portraits of individual nations and essays on the larger themes: the role of Marxism, the roots of economic decline, the colonial heritage. Africans were free to become fully fledged Portuguese citizens, the catch of course being that very few met the qualifications. Only too patently 11,750 white men [as in Nigeria] cannot keep 30,000,000 black men from becoming free, once the 30,000,000 black men decide that they want to become free. Lamb asserts, the West should provide a ''Marshall Plan'' for Africa, rather than pour in undirected aid, how will that differ from the paternalism that has added to the disincentives characterizing the first two decades of the era of independence?
