The Challenge for Africa by Wangari Maathai.
The troubles of Africa today are severe and wide-ranging. Yet, too often, they are portrayed by the media in extreme terms connoting poverty, dependence, and desperation. In this book, Wangari Maathai, Nobel Peace Prize laureate and founder of the Green Belt Movement, offers a unique perspective on these challenges, even as she calls for a moral revolution among Africans themselves. Illuminating the complex and dynamic nature of the continent, Maathai offers “hardheaded hope” and “realistic options” for change and improvement. She deftly describes what Africans can and need to do for themselves, stressing all the while responsibility and accountability.
