First published in 2005, The Fate of Africawas hailed by reviewers as "A masterpiece. . . The nonfiction book of the year" ( The New York Post); "a magnificent achievement" ( Weekly Standard); "a joy," ( Wall Street Journal) and "one of the decade's most important works on Africa" ( Publishers Weekly, starred review). Now Martin Meredith has revised this classic history to incorporate important recent developments, including the Darfur crisis in Sudan, Robert Mugabe's continued destructive rule in Zimbabwe, controversies over Western aid and exploitation of Africa's resources, the growing importance and influence of China, and the democratic movement roiling the North African countries of Tunisia, Egypt, and Jordan.
