Caplan, Gerald

SUMMARY

In the wealthy West, it's assumed that Africa is the problem and we are the solution. This timely book argues the opposite. Though couched in benevolent terms, Western policies in fact have for decades helped fuel the continent's devastating decline. Every year, far more of Africa's riches flow out to the rich world than we plough into Africa. In this systematic process of exploitation, explains author Gerald Caplan, first-world leaders work in happy harmony with African despots to wreak havoc on their nations and peoples.The Betrayal of Africaexplains 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 change. Using simple, lucid language, the book helps Western readers understand what they can do to remedy a complex, increasingly dire situation that affects us all.Caplan, Gerald is the author of 'Betrayal of Africa', published 2008 under ISBN 9780888998255 and ISBN 0888998252.
