Twentieth Century Africa
iUniverse, 2001 - Всего страниц: 690
Twentieth Century Africa resembles a moving-picture travelogue in conveying pertinent information to the reader about the 53 countries of Africa, a continent that is getting much attention these days. The writer offers a thorough description of each country, including the languages spoken, religious beliefs, resources, political ideologies, average incomes, relationships with the United States, and specific attributes and problems. Readers will learn that many of the countries contain valuable resources such as gold, copper, uranium, and various minerals; and they will become more familiar with countries that have been prominent in the news—Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, the Sudan, and Rwanda. Furthermore, the author discusses the wildlife habitat of each country. This is a very readable book that includes material that is fascinating and sometimes disheartening, but always appealing. The book also contains maps associated with each country and a reference map of all of Africa, including the six off-shore countries.
