The book Beasts of No Nation written by the Nigerian author Uzodinma Iweala caused a stir, in the sense that he wrote in an impressive way about the child-soldiers in West Africa. No his book has been turned into a movie and questions are being raised. What kind of image is attached to this problem of child-soldiers? What image has been devised to portrait Africa and Africans? 

Read about some of these questions.
