Famine And Foreigners Ethiopia Since Live Aid
The terrible 1984 famine in Ethiopia focused the world's attention on the country and the issue of aid as never before. Anyone over the age of 30 remembers something of the events - if not the original TV pictures, then Band Aid and Live Aid, Geldof and Bono. Peter Gill was the first journalist to reach the epicentre of the famine and one of the TV reporters who brought the tragedy to light.
This book tells the story of Ethiopia, the place, the people, and the westerners that tried to help. The first journalist to reach the centre of the famine in 1984, Peter Gill draws on interviews with villagers, politicians, aid workers, and economists and asks whether any of the rich world's big promises on aid and Africa are being fulfilled.
