5.0 out of 5 stars Highly interesting book, 15 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dancing in the Glory of Monsters (Paperback)
I love African history. Having exhausted the supply of good historical books on sourthern Africa - I started to read about the history of the Great Lakes region. Having never lived or even been there I thought it would be difficult to become interested in the regions history...I was wrong. The situation in the Congo is so complex and involves so many different countries (especially African nations) that Stearns had a huge task on his hands to explain it in a single book. However, I think he succeeded and has produced an amazing story. This book looks at the recent history of the Congo and how the crisis in the region involves so many different countries in the region. I think it explains the politics taking place in a really skillful way - I finished the book in a few days because the whole story was just fascinating and I couldn't put the book down. If you are interested in contemporary regional politics in sourthern and central Africa - you will find this book a fascinating read. I would place this book within my top 5 all-time favourite books on African history !
