Angola: Anatomy of an Oil State
Tony Hodges
Price: $ 22.95

Praise for the first edition, Angola from Afro-Stalinism to Petro-Diamond Capitalism:

"While most interpretations of the situation in Angola agree that the country suffers from deep divisions that will not easily be overcome, few analysts have been able satisfactorily to explain why one of the potentially richest countries in Africa should be in such a wretched state. Tony Hodges's book is the first analytically to link together the various economic and political strands that must be examined in order to provide a plausible account of Angola's post-colonial tragedy." ¿Patrick Chabal, International Affairs

". . . a brief account of how a state once run by Marxist poets, men of high ideals, has turned into another Nigeria." ¿Times Literary Supplement

"A veteran observer of Angola, Hodges covers the whole appalling mess with notable detachment." ¿Foreign Affairs

Updated and revised following the death of Jonas Savimbi and the suppression of the UNITA rebels, this new edition discusses prospects for using Angola's oil wealth to end the country's staggering poverty, rising illiteracy, and increasing child mortality.

Tony Hodges worked in Angola for United Nations agencies from 1994 to 1998. His earlier publications include Angola: Prospects for Recovery.
