The Hopeless Continent?
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Poverty, disease, corruption, AIDS - all these negative connotations are traditionally representative of Africa, overall painting it as a hopeless continent. Research has shown that the international media is most often guilty of this. However, recent academic inquiry has been concerned with how African media represents itself. This book merges both angles of inquiry, by assessing how Time, The Economist and Financial Mail magazines - one American, one European and one South African - report on African politics, economics and HIV/AIDS stories. These three categories encompass the bulk of events that become news on Africa. The longitudinal analysis offered in this book shows that positive and somewhat mixed representations of Africa and its countries abound in these texts, even though negative portrayals still seem to be the norm. This analysis then highlights that all is not hopeless for Africa, but certainly indicates that journalistic practice towards the continent must change. Researchers of media and politics, particularly the African dimension, will find this book most useful.

The spellbinding story of an American lawyer who takes on a nearly impossible case - the defense of an African freedom fighter against his corrupt government's charge of murder. Damon Pierce's life has just reached a defining moment: a gifted California lawyer, he's being divorced by his wife and his work often seems soulless. Then he receives a frantic e-mail from Marissa Brand Okari - a woman he loved years ago - and decides to risk everything to respond to her plea for help. Marissa's husband, Bobby Okari, is the charismatic leader of a freedom movement in the volatile west African nation of Luandia, which is being torn apart by the world's craving for its vast supply of oil. Bobby's outspoken opposition to the exploitation of his homeland by PetroGlobal - a giant American oil company with close ties to Luandia's brutal government - has enraged General Savior Karama, the country's autocratic ruler. After Bobby leads a protest rally during a full eclipse of the sun, everyone in his home village is massacred by government troops. And now Bobby has been arrested and charged with the murder of three PetroGlobal workers. Still drawn to Marissa, Pierce agrees to defend Bobby, hoping to save both Bobby and Marissa from almost certain death. But the lethal politics of Luandia may cost Pierce his life instead. Culminating in a dramatic show trial and a desperate race against time, Eclipse combines a thrilling narrative with a vivid look at the human cost of the global lust for oil. Here is Richard North Patterson at his compelling best, confirming his place as our most provocative author of popular fiction. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Francis James.
