Quick, interesting read. Starts off the darkest and the best: a short bit about living in Uganda, a bit about the conflict and huge wall in Western Sahara, and terrible stuff about hunger and bureaucracy in Sudan. Also, it's from the 80s; interesting to see how the writers' perspectives differ from ours now. (the story about Vietnam is kind of a trip.)
