Summary
"Kapuscinski arrived in Africa in 1957, at the beginning of the end of colonial rule. From the hopeful years of independence through the bloodcurdling disintegration of nations such as Nigeria, Liberia, Rwanda, and Angola, Kapuscinski recounts great social and political changes as seen through the prism of the ordinary African."--Jacket
