Beyond the Malachite Hills by JONATHAN LAWLEY (Espin, 1954)

Since the heady days of decolonisation the story seems to be one of unrelenting disaster – dictatorship, ethnic conflict, civil war, and economic failure. All this has been compounded by natural disasters – including the scourge of AIDS. But there is another, less reported, story of Africa; throwing off the colonial past, gaining in pride and embracing the crucial management function; all this in the context of fruitful collaboration with Western business and increasingly, with Asian markets. Jonathan Lawley paints a vivid and convincing picture of solid political, social and economic progress. Beyond the Malachite Hills is a remarkable testament to his long-lasting and profound involvement with this often misunderstood continent.
