ABSTRACT
This article discusses the book "Inside Africa," by John Gunther. It was written with the express purpose, in the words of the author, to supply all the information the ordinary reader needs to know about Africa. Gunther's latest book is as much a faithful image of the United States itself as it is of Africa. It emphasizes on sex, violence, local color and the anecdote. Like America also, the vigorous flame of Gunther's early liberalism is much muted and the same sober, damp and "realistic" considerations which are making American foreign policy a shambles can be seen at play here.
