The Graves Are Not Yet Full: Race, Tribe, and Power in the Heart of Africa

by

The Graves Are Not Yet Full: Race, Tribe, and Power in the Heart of Africa Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since 1983 journalist Bill Berkeley has traveled through Africa's most troubled lands-Rwanda, Liberia, South Africa, Sudan, Uganda, and Zaire-seeking out the tyrants and military leaders who orchestrate seemingly intractable wars. Shattering the myth that ancient tribal hatred lies at the heart of the continent's troubles, Berkeley instead holds accountable the "Big Men" who came to power during this period, describing the very rational methods behind their apparent madness. A New Republic Book

Synopsis:

"You will understand Africa differently after reading this book...the richly reported stories he tells to make his case are unforgettable." -William Finnegan.

Bill Berkeley is a contributing editor on the op-ed page of the New York Times and a Fellow at the World Policy Institute of the New School for Social Research in New York City. He lives in New York City.
