I learned an enormous amount from this fine book and am angrier than ever at the great damage so many western governments, institutions and businesses routinely inflict on Africans. Dust from our Eyes should be compulsory reading for all Westerners. Gerald Caplan, author of The Betrayal of Africa Before we blame Africans for the corruption, chaos and anarchy - across their continent, we should determine who the corrupters are, how they corrupt, and why they are permitted to continue. A course in Exploitation 101 might well prescribe Dust from our Eyes as its text. Judy Kennedy, The CCPA Monitor Even while tackling so many politically charged issues, Dust from our Eyes remains a deeply human book, with a narrative and a set of interviews running through every chapter. This is a compelling work that could change your perspective on Africa and the West's impact there. Joseph Howse, The Chronicle Herald
