September 2006
New Statesman;9/25/2006, Vol. 135 Issue 4811, p32
The article reports on Norwegians' intense interest in and sympathy with Africa. The oil wealth that is fueling growth in towns like Stavanger is making Norwegians feel guilty of their undeserved good luck and Africa's equally unwarranted troubles. The festivals and benefits staged in Stavanger tended to attract more concerned Norwegians than Africans.
