Reviews

Thomas Sankara: A Revolutionary in Cold War Africa is one of the most fully realized biographies of a modern African politicalgure in recent years, and a striking portrayal not just of this fascinating and ultimately tragic states-man but of an entire political era on the continent.

-- "New York Review of Books"

This is an exemplary biography of an Africa president revered for his integrity and gift of inspired leadership.

--R. I. Rotberg, Harvard University "Choice"
