a new and acclaimed study

There  was a civil war.
There were many casualities.
Oil was found and things changed.
Changed for a small elite.
An elite that is focussed on the western benefits.
Westerners travel far south to find wealth.

Ricardo Soares de Oliveira wrote it down in his ‘Magnificent and beggar land’. It shows the many sides of a country on the rise. The book is published by Jacana Media.
