Africa Betrayed by George B. With independence from colonial rule, Africans had hoped for liberty, prosperity and a new beginning.

Instead, they have experienced have brought nothing but economic misery, famine, senseless civil wars, wanton destruction, flagrant violations of human rights and brutal repression. Africa Betrayed is a powerful attack on the dictators who have ruined an entire continent. Ayittey writes devastatingly on the horrors of black neo-colonialism, arguing that it is naive for commentators to blame Africa's misery on external factors: African leaders have betrayed both the just aspirations of their countrymen and Africa's indigenous political systems, which in no way endorse tyranny.

He argues that a second liberation struggle is beginning throughout the continent - one that will sweep away the kleptocracy and rediscover the African traditions that have endured throughout the horrors of both white colonialism and black neo-colonialism.

Jun 19, John Gurney rated it really liked it.

I had the pleasure of being slightly acquainted with Dr. Ayittey; as this book proves, he writes cogently and powerfully. The tale is, in many ways, depressing in the dashing of hopes of post-colonial Sub-Saharan Africa by so many brutal, thuggish "Big Man" dictators.

Sadly, two decades after it was written, the story is little changed. A must read for those who want to understand Africa's predicament.
