The Shackled Continent

The Shackled Continent

by RobertGuest (Author)


A study of modern Africa, mixing careful analysis with racy first-hand reportage. Why is Africa so poor? Why are so many of its nations at war? Why is AIDS devastating Africa like nowhere else? And why do African entrepreneurs find it so hard to borrow money? In this provocative book, Robert Guest argues that the continent?s problems stem largely from bad government. Guest has reported from some 25 African countries for The Economist, but wears his expertise lightly. His subject is serious, but he writes with irresistible colour and wit.
