Review

"This politically-incorrect work is a boisterous, entertaining and highly accessible polemic by a man who, when it comes to development and Africa, has every reason to know his onions. The author challenges the shibboleths of the aid industry with courage, compassion and humour. A timely and bracing read."--Michela Wrong, Author of "In the Footsteps of Mr. Kurtz: Living on the Brink of Disaster in the ""Congo." "At first, this book made my hair stand on end, but then I saw it as the heartfelt cry of a lover of Africa who has devoted his best years to the continent. His analysis is disturbing and non-conformist, but I agree with his suggestions. He was not born one, but he is nonetheless a great 'African'."--Martin Ziguele, Prime Minister of the Central African Republic (2001-2003) and runner-up in the March-April 2005 presidential elections.  ""The Trouble with Africa" is a blast of fresh air over a continent that has for decades been suffocating under a blanket of well meant

Review

'The Trouble with Africa debunks widely held myths, and will stimulate an important, ongoing debate.'
