Africa is huge, internationally vital, potentially rich and powerful yet mired in failure - political, economic, social and even cultural. Yet the story of contemporary Africa is not just one of global tragedy but also of enormous hope for the future. This stimulating and unconventional book on Africa today and its relationship with the West explores the many complex reasons behind Africa's failure to fulfil its potential - it is a continent blighted by colonialism, exploitation and the interference of great powers in the international relations of the region - and offers some genuinely original and well-argued suggestions for ways forward. Critical and objective yet involved and sympathetic, "Grasping Africa" demonstrates Stephen Chan's deep understanding of the history and politics of Africa based on his long experience of the continent in often dangerous circumstances.

Recensioner i media

'Insightful, elegant and compassionate... Should be on the bedside table of every African policymaker in the West.' -William M. Gumede, author of Thabo Mbeki and the Battle for the Soul of the ANC 'Personal and passionate, Stephen Chan has written a powerful critique of those who think they know the answers to Africa's problems. Africa, he suggests, is in the grip of a distorted post-colonial relationship between itself and the rest of the world and that leaves it powerless. That is the biggest problem of all.' -Richard Dowden, Director, The Royal African Society
