Must read for those interested in African agriculture, October 11, 2010

By Carl - This review is from: Surprised by Laughter (Hardcover)

As a current African agriculturalist (I currently work in rural Zambia), it is refreshing to hear a voice describing the point-of-view of the African farmer, particularly from someone who has spent such considerable amount of time on the ground as has Stephen Carr. This is by far a journey in empathy ... Mr. and Mrs. Carr's story reveals an appreciation of the challenges of life in rural Africa that shape decision-making by farmers, as evidenced by his tales of the southern Sudan, Uganda, Tanzania, and Malawi. I would recommend this as a "must read" for those who deal at any level with agricultural policy in sub-Saharan Africa.
