Fantastic Invasion: Notes on Contemporary Africa

By Patrick Marnham
Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1980
252 pp. $10.95

In this vividly etched collage of images, Africa emerges victorious, inexorably breaking down or subverting the Western values and institutions left by the departed colonialists. The impression conveyed by this attentive contemporary observer, however, is-in its bleak focus on the nether side of African struggles for survival-as one-dimensional in the end as those of the Westerners who preceded him.
