Editorial Reviews

To many outsiders, Africa is seen only through the poverty and drought-stricken images that are broadcast internationally. With its intimidating vastness, many are unable to see past the stereotypical narratives of conflict and famine that surround the continent. Luckily, Dr. Tom Young, in conjunction with the Bolinda Beginner Guides, has released an easy-to-follow and gripping look at the true nature of Africa. With a sharp and engaging delivery from veteran performer Richard Aspel, this audiobook provides a great base for those looking to expand their knowledge on a region that is often misrepresented.

Publisher's Summary

Vast, diverse, dynamic, and turbulent, the true nature of Africa is often obscured by its poverty-stricken image. In this controversial and gripping guide, Tom Young cuts through the emotional hype to critically analyse the continent’s political history and the factors behind its dismal economic performance. Maintaining that colonial influences are often overplayed, Young argues that much blame must lie with African governments themselves and that Western aid can often cause as much harm as good.
