Synopsis: 1 HARDCOVER BOOK WITH DUST COVER
From Library Journal:
Rosenblum, a journalist, and Williamson, a scientist, explore Africa in the 1980s and report ubiquitous disaster and tragedy. The book deals with the human element and that is both its attraction and its weakness, for it is more readable than Bill Freund's clinical economic assessment, The Making of Contemporary Africa (Indiana Univ. Pr., 1984), but less profound. It weaves a backdrop of misguided charity, of bloated egos amid corruption and waste, and of our State Department consistently backing the wrong horse. The real concern is lack of concernU.S. aid to this huge continent is being reduced by a third, while tiny Israel, which already receives more, is getting an increase. This is a hard look at a depressing future. Highly recommended. Louise Leonard, Univ. of Florida Lib., Gainesville
