In the wealthy West, it's assumed that Africa could be the dilemma and we are the remedy. In this systematic strategy of exploitation, explains author Gerald Caplan, first-world leaders function in happy harmony with African despots to wreak havoc on their nations and peoples. Though couched in benevolent terms, Western policies in fact have for decades helped fuel the continent's devastating decline. This timely book argues the opposite. The Betrayal of Africa explains its historical background, the contemporary situation, and how a conflation of elements — China's bold new presence in Africa, an active and angry civil society demanding government reform, and fresh leadership — is creating the possibility for positive adjust. Using simple, lucid language, the book helps Western readers understand what they can do to remedy a complex, increasingly dire circumstance that affects us all. Every year, far a lot far more of Africa's riches flow out to the rich globe than we plough into Africa.
