Another Fine Mess, Helen C. Epstein "The author recalls an African myth in which a wily hare outwits powerful but dimwitted enemies and then likens Ugandan dictator Yoweri Museveni to the clever hare manipulating bumbling Americans.... A sizzling indictment of Uganda’s current strongman and of the American policy in Africa that supports his corrupt regime with generous foreign aid." Kirkus Reviews... more

Nollywood, Emily Witt "The book tells the story of a fascinating industry beyond the view of most Americans, a barely-two-decades old business built in a country with almost no movie theaters...
