Pressestimmen"'A timely, intriguing and provocative book. The author's love of the continent shines through every line, yet his bold suggestions will raise eyebrows and provoke debate.' Baroness Lynda Chalker, former UK Secretary of State for Overseas Development 'boisterous, entertaining and highly accessible. Calderisi challenges the shibboleths of the aid industry with courage, compassion and humour. A timely and bracing read.'
