A Peace of Africa: Reflections on Life in the Great Lakes Region
Whether entering war zones, volunteering during elections, or working in a refugee camp, David Zarembka insightfully explains the Great Lakes region of Africa. As a Quaker and a peacemaker who married a Kenyan, Zarembka has been deeply involved in Africa for more than 45 years. He is able to decipher the essence of cultural and societal issues and is able to explain the differences between African and American cultures. By weaving personal stories with historical narratives, he analyzes current situations and offers bold solutions to make the area prosperous. This book describes the successes of his peacemaking work there and gives an underlying rationale on how peace and reconciliation can be achieved in the Great Lakes region.
