Product Description

Review

Not so much a novel, more a slab of dynamite -- Sunday Mirror

Product Description

The sequel to 'The Tribe That Lost Its Head' is a compelling story which charts the steady drift of a young African nation towards bankruptcy, chaos and barbarism. On the island of Pharamaul, a former British Protectorate, newly installed Prime Minister, Chief Dinamaula, celebrates Independence Day with his people, full of high hopes for the future. But the heady euphoria fades and Dinamaula’s ambitions and ideals start to buckle as his new found wealth corrupts him, leaving his nation to spiral towards hellish upheaval and tribal warfare.

4.0 out of 5 stars An accurate but dated perspective on post-colonial Africa 10 Nov 2013
By Alan Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The sequal to "The Tribe That Lost Its Head" this 1968 novel traces the downward trajectory of a representative African state in its post-colonal years. Although set in a make-believe country, it is a cookie-cutter representation of any sub-Saharan ex-Brit colony or protectorate you could imagine: Sierra Leone, Gambia, Ghana, Zambia - and most recently, Zimbabwe.

Dated because of its Cold War setting and the fact that people who had direct experience of what the author depicts are now dead or too aged to bother any longer. Political correctness has also laid its be-vermined blanket over the whole.

Monsarrat was a best-selling author in his day (The Cruel Sea) and spent many years as a colonial officer in Africa - much of this book's fact-points are self-evidently derived from his keen personal interest in the African situation as it unfolded in the 1960's.

Few modern readers will, I suspect, be able to relate to the story or its central characters. This is the novel's greatest shortcoming in 2013. Monsarrat's writing style is more stilted and oblique than is the norm today, so this may be off-putting for some.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Africa Almost Won 29 July 2012
By Graeme - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Richer Than All His Tribe is a very poignant story for any-one who experienced the efforts of the British Colonial Ofiice, particularly anywhere in Africa. Sadly many experiences described are based on real events. The book is written in a pragmatic way obviously drawing on personal knowledge.
