Summary
Travelling across all forty-nine sub-Saharan countries, author Alex Perry meets entrepreneurs and warlords, professors and cocaine smugglers, presidents and jahidists. From the drug ports of Guinea-Bissau and the genocide crypts of Rwanda to the remaking of Lagos, Africa's biggest city, and a homestay with Barack Obama's family in western Kenya, Perry finds communities changing quickly, deeply and unevenly - but ultimately breaking free. The culmination of nearly a decade of on-the-ground reporting, The Rift is a fearless challenge to conventional wisdom on Africa
