Publisher Comments:

First published in 2005, The Fate of Africa was hailed by reviewers as “A masterpiece. . . The nonfiction book of the year” (The New York Post); “a magnificent achievement” (Weekly Standard); “a joy,” (Wall Street Journal) and “one of the decades most important works on Africa” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

Now Martin Meredith has revised this classic history to incorporate important recent developments, including the Darfur crisis in Sudan, Robert Mugabes continued destructive rule in Zimbabwe, controversies over Western aid and exploitation of Africas resources, the growing importance and influence of China, and the democratic movement roiling the North African countries of Tunisia, Egypt, and Jordan.

Synopsis:

An epic biography of post-colonial Africa, and illuminating insight into its current devastating problems, by one of its most authoritative scholars
