Review:

"I hope the world will support her vision of hope" (Nelson Mandela)

"From one of Africa's most positive and far-sighted thinkers comes a wonderful book combining an elegant critique of Africa's troubled past with a rallying cry for how Africans can use culture, nature and self-belief to reverse their continent's decline. The Challenge for Africa is a milestone in African writing that both educates and inspires" (Tim Butcher)

"Penetrating. . . a 21st century manifesto for Africans, drawing on her own experience as a worldly Kenyan, street-fighting activists, member of parliament and, from 2003-2006, government minister. Her analysis is thorough. She reaches into African history, culture, psychology, contemporary politics and fragile ecosystems" ( Financial Times)

"Like a Nelson Mandela or a Mahatma Gandhi, Maathai stands way above most mortals" ( The Guardian)

"Wangari Maathai is a prophet for our time" (Alexandra Fuller)

Book Description:
