About this book
Subtitled, "How The World Betrayed A Small African Nation". Brilliantly reveals the contradictions and comedy, past and present, of Eritrea.
One small East African country embodies the battered history of the continent: patronised by colonialists, riven by civil war, confused by Cold War manoeuvring, proud, colorful, with Africa's best espresso and worst rail service. Michela Wrong brilliantly reveals the contradictions and comedy, past and present, of Eritrea.
