This section goes deep into British governance, then the Mau-Mau, and covers off Zanzibar and relationship between the Sultan and the British Resident. Sixty thousand Belgian whites cannot permanently deny political expression and civil rights to more than 12,000,000 blacks. In 1942, as a Staff Officer in G2, he was assigned to the section covering the campaign in North Africa, and after the successful termination of that operation he teas sent to Dakar as our Military Observer in French West Africa.

This is a digitized version of an article from The Times’s print archive, before the start of online publication in 1996. There seems to be a disconnect with the Belgians in this book - Gunther seems overwhelmingly positive in spite of the horrendous treatment dished out to the locals.While publicly a bon vivant and modest celebrity, Gunther in his private life suffered disappointment and tragedy. FWA is made up of Mauritania, Ivory Coast, Senegal, French Sudan (now Mali), French Guinea (now Guinea), Haute Volta (French Upper Volta, now Burkina Faso), Dahomey (now Benin) and Niger. Lamb points out, have played a critical role in those nations that have recorded economic successes -but where does the foreign involvement come to an end, and when does the buffer of outside support fall away to force the Africans to help themselves? Slight dent to edge of rear cover, and possibly damp or spill affecting extreme bottom corner of last few pages with crinkling. Ghana gets an indulgent interview with the (black) Prime Minister, Dr Kwame Nkrumah, then a quick side trip to Togoland - British Togoland, which was joined to Gold Coast and is now part of Ghana, and French Togoland - now Togo.

Lamb's book: With time, he concludes, Africa will find itself and assert itself; yet the evidence presented in his book - of personalized power at the top and popular lethargy in the nether regions of society - would seem to indicate that Africa's time, so far, has been as wasted as its vast agricultural and mineral resources. Portugal - Portuguese policy seems to consist of keeping them from any modern advancements, and retaining slave labour. To explore the gigantic and diverse continent of Africa and to study the inside workings and problems of its vast populations is an appalling undertaking. ANYONE who reads John Gunther’s Inside Africa, or even reads in it, must be conscious that he is dealing with a journalistic tour de force of extraordinary dimensions.To preserve these articles as they originally appeared, The Times does not alter, edit or update them.
