"Andy Rowell, James Marriott and Lorne Stockman here set out how western companies have cooperated with local elites in West Africa to maintain control, and they trace a long and ongoing history of colonial and neo-colonial exploitation. Far from the ringing declarations of the G8 Summit, the authors reveal how America and Britain are planning a new century of plunder in Africa."--BOOK JACKET.
