Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is horribly boring and is even harder to read. By the time you get done figuring out what the author of a particular doctument has ment in a line you forget what the entire paragraph is about. I think I care even less about what is going on in Africa now just because I was forced to read this book for a class.
