The Tragedy of Madagascar: An Island Nation Confronts the 21st Century - Nathaniel Adams

The Tragedy of Madagascar: An Island Nation Confronts the 21st Century


'...a must read for anyone who cares about the fascinating, beguiling, maddening red island off the coast of Africa - or for anyone who wonders why so many forgotten, seemingly invisible people are trapped in poverty across the globe. With a sharp eye for detail, analysis, and storytelling, Adams is an expert guide who brings the island to life.' Brian Klaas, Washington Post columnist Why has Madagascar failed to make any meaningful progress since independence? A mix of journalism and scholarship, The Tragedy of Madagascar is the result of almost nine months spent on that fascinating island interviewing a wide range of political leaders at the national and local levels, including a penetrating interview with the country's former president, Marc Ravalomanana. In addition to offering a new look at the nation's history, the book explores in depth the military coup in 2009 that replaced Ravalomanana with Andry Rajoelina, and all of the negative aftershocks that followed. It then mixes in chapters on the bleak economic prospects for young people across the island, the unsustainable population growth that threatens so much of its future, and a unique chapter on the effects of climate change on the southern region of Madagascar, where worsening droughts have left millions in humanitarian peril.
