Book: Little Liberia – An African Odyssey in New York?


Posted on June 27, 2011 05:45

Fans of the Jonny Steinberg school of in-depth reporting will not be disappointed.

In a seamless blend of biography, history and reportage, we follow two characters from Liberia to New York, sketching out the war that ripped through Liberia in the 1980s and 1990s and how migrants brought that conflict with them.

The sweep is ambitious – and Steinberg is not shy about including himself in the story.

A must for a quick hit of Liberian history and a compelling examination of life in the diaspora.

Understand Africa's tomorrow... today

We believe that Africa is poorly represented, and badly under-estimated. Beyond the vast opportunity manifest in African markets, we highlight people who make a difference; leaders turning the tide, youth driving change, and an indefatigable business community. That is what we believe will change the continent, and that is what we report on. With hard-hitting investigations, innovative analysis and deep dives into countries and sectors, The Africa Report delivers the insight you need.
