The Democratic Republic of Congo: Between Hope and Despair

by Michael Deibert - £13.99  Zed Books Ltd (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781780323459 | ISBN 10: 178032345x

The Democratic Republic of Congo has been home to the deadliest conflicts of the postwar era and hosts the largest United Nations peacekeeping mission in the world. In this compelling book, acclaimed journalist Michael Deibert paints a picture of a nation in flux, inching towards peace but at the same time solidifying into another era of authoritarian rule under its enigmatic president, Joseph Kabila.
 
Featuring a wealth of first-hand interviews, the narrative travels from war-torn villages in the country’s east to the pulsing capital of Kinshasa in order to bring us the voices of the Congolese and explore the complicated political, ethnic and economic geography of this tattered land. A must-read for anyone interested in contemporary Africa, The Democratic Republic of Congo: Between, Hope and Despair sheds new light on this sprawling and often misunderstood country that has become iconic both for its great potential and dashed hopes.
