"In the beginning, we had the land. Then the white man came and he had the Bible. So, he taught us to pray with our eyes closed. When we opened our eyes again, he had the land and we had the Bible."

To be taken only in small doses. There's nothing uplifting about this book, and that is why I sought it out. The subject matter is still remarkably relevant, despite the book being almost thirty years old. Marnham's Africa is a place of horror, mostly man-made, and his documentation of the failures of western aid programs in the continent is something we would do well to pay close attention to. Unfortunately out of print, but definitely worth a look if you can find a used copy.
