Description

This is the first book of photography that portrays Angola as it exists today. For a place that few can pin-point on a map or in their minds, Angola is quickly emerging as the most important economic leader in Africa. After almost three decades of civil war, the Angola of today is an anomaly the country is not only aggressively rebuilding, but economically blooming in the midst of a global financial crisis.

As a result, in 2008 alone the economy rose 27.5 per cent.show more
