By John Gunther
Harper, 1955, 952 pp.
This latest of Mr. Gunther's continental anatomies, and certainly one of his best, takes us on an extended tour through nearly all of Africa. Based in part on a long trip in 1952-53, it is at the same time a remarkable compendium of information. While the author does not overlook the exotic and the colorful, his attention is primarily directed toward Africa's staggering social, economic and political problems, which are as varied as they are refractory.
