Review:

George Monbiot has already done more to change the world and our perception of it than most of us can hope to achieve in a lifetime . . . Now he has exposed what is going on in Kenya and Tanzania, where the nomadic people are being driven off their land and systematically murdered . . . As we have learnt to expect, he pulls no punches, naming names and pointing an unerring finger at the sinners and their blatant corruption. Yet he writes with such charm and erudition that no one could mistake this for the ravings of a fanatic . . . We need people like Monbiot more than ever before * Robin Hanbury Tenison, New Scientist * Monbiot brings to East Africa the same combination of scholarship, foolhardy courage and passionate commitment which characterized his previous books on Indonesia and Brazil. In these respects more than any other travel writer I can think of he embodies all the great virtues of the Victorian explorers . . . required reading for anyone who wishes to understand better the problems of modern Africa * Daily Mail *
