This is a history of Africa since the end of the colonial era. The author does not tread lightly on Africa's rulers' since that time. The level of brutality and corruption is exposed and elucidated relentlessly. Crimes against humanity are so common that one wonders why the cycle is so self-perpetuating. Although statistics and trends are analyzed the main focus is primarily on the personalities - history is made by people.
Chapters are well sectioned and the writing is very clear and to the point. Although the book is 'long' (close to 700 pages), it did not take me long to read it - it is a page turner.
Nelson Mandela is one of the few personalities who stands far above and beyond the rest of the African leaders - most of whom are tyrants at best and megalomaniac sadists at worst. One dictator after another is shown as un-caring for his people; most use tribal nationalism for their own benefit.
