Reviews

'There's really no contest between Marnham and Lamb, a Los Angeles Times hack, for a contemporary view of the continent. The Africans has been almost a best-seller, but Lamb's fly-in, fly-out technique is a muddled, statistical rant, couched in cold-war rhetoric and, even when ostensibly uncovering a pearl of wisdom, he can be rebarbatively offensive.'
