The most recent books' section of The Washington Post has several reviews on Africa-themed works.

-Emily Wax looks at They Poured Fire on Us From the Sky: The True Story of Three Lost Boys From Sudan written by the three young men in question along with Judy A. Bernstein.

-Former assistant secretary of state for Africa Susan Rice reviews the new book by Michela Wrong on Eritrea and its colonial past, I Didn't Do It for You :How the World Betrayed a Small African Nation.

-Human Rights Watch Alison Desforges, who wrote a chilling report on the Rwandan genocide, takes a look at Jean Hatzfeld's Machete Season: The Killers in Rwanda Speak.

Thanks for these great tips on new books about Africa, Brian. I particularly liked the Lost Children feature at the Washington Post by Emily Wax. "They Poured Fire on Us from the Sky" will definately go into my personal library as soon as I can find a German bookseller who has it in stock.
