An African Winter

By Preston King
Viking Penguin, 1986
249 pp. $5.95
Purchase

Palpably depicting the ravages of poverty, drought and war in the Horn of Africa, the author indicts the West for past and present exploitation, but also makes a plea for humanity and rationality on the part of the two superpowers, suggesting that they should recognize their own interest "in making the powerless stronger, if only to reinforce independent judgment in respect to their own otherwise dangerous deficiencies."
