Très bientôt dans vos librairies: From Lumumba to Gbagbo: Africa in the Eddy of the Euro-American Quest for Exceptionalism


About the Book
In recent years, the Euro-American powers have made multiple armed incursions into Africa. The election of President Obama, greeted by most Africans as providential for their centuries-old troubled relations with the West, instead, inaugurated a destructive coalition against Africa. In places like Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt and Libya, the United Nations, the International Criminal Court, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund have supported military intrusions, arbitrary imprisonments, deportations and political assassinations under the guise of bringing freedom and democracy to benighted Africa.

The destabilization of Africa, the dividing of the continent into lawless zones controlled by thuggish warlords, the displacement of millions of refugees and the systematic sacking of Africa’s resources are telling: In Africa, the West was not on a goodwill mission. This book examines the West’s policy of aggression in Africa over the last 50 years as a legacy of colonialism, with human and economic costs that are radicalizing African nationalists.
