  Grasping Africa: A Tale of Tragedy and Achievement, by Stephen Chan, I.B. Tauris ublishers, !""#. A fascinating but puzzling work. This book attempts to not simply rehash all of the problems that hinder African development but also provide some glimmers of hope for a better future. However the author is outright disdainful of the idea of writing an‘academic’ work. As such it is part political analysis, part travelogue, part personalmemoir and part creative prose. This makes the book etremely interesting to read. !t alsomakes the book an enigma as to how to treat it" should it be in the classroom# $oes ithave value for governments# The author is in fact a leader of one of the most prestigiousinstitutes of African studies in the world. Thus his personal opinions should be givensome credence beyond the purely sub%ective. The book is organized in a logical manner that gives a nuanced look into both international policy development and subse&uentflaws within that policy. 'ut it is still meant to be something other than a politics book.As such, it is beyond the reach of most undergraduate classes and perhaps only meant for specialists already with an etensive knowledge of the continent.
