Africa’s Blessing, Africa’s Curse: The Legacy of Resource Extraction (print)


8.5 by 11 book, 72 pages

Diverse as Africa is, her people and lands are impacted by mining operations throughout the continent and across dozens of countries.  These are the stories of Indigenous peoples, peasants, small-scale miners, and mine workers whose daily lives are affected by the destructive manner in which large-scale mining companies often operate.  Are the continent’s enormous mineral deposits a blessing that could lift more people out of poverty? Or are they a curse that leaves behind poisoned lands and water and ever more poverty? Or both? Aussi disponible en français
