The first edition of this incisive text on the problems of drought and famine facing Africa won worldwide critical acclaim. Revised with a new introduction, Lloyd Timberlake's bestselling study is invaluable reading for anyone interested in Africa.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
War, apartheid, illiteracy, and disease: there are so many problems afflicting Africa that the only certainty is that there is "no quick fix" and "no easy solutions." This useful book examines the looming spectre of environmental catastrophe and its inevitable byproduct: famine. Timberlake explains why agriculture in Africa is on the brink, how it got that way, and what can be done to put it right. His message is clear: get agriculture going as in Kenya and the Ivory Coast and development will follow. This is a remarkable book, clear and concise, about a complex subject. Recommended.
