Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Didn't Do It For You: How the World Used and Abused a Small African Nation (Paperback)
A history lesson about a small nation which seems to have been abused by every foreign country that it came into contact with, and then when they get some measure of self governance they go and stuff it up.
This book shows us that the major powers are only interested in themselves and what they can gain from others. This is something we should all remember.
This book educated me , angered me and made want to know more about Eritrea . At the same time it raises questions about all the other stories we see reported in the news papers about far away lands.
This is history at it's best easily digested with a host of unforgettable historical figures and full of minor details which flesh out the story and make you want to say 'did you know this'
