Strongly biased point of view blindly glorifying Botswana's economic development while ignoring serious issues as HIV/AIDS, corruption and questionable democratic systems because of its electoral registration system and long lasting limitations of freedom of speach. However, I apperciated its analytical part with it's explained what led to country's miraculous economic performance with applying of developmental theories (e.g.Evans) pointing out their limits on Botswana's (deviant) case.
