Hotel Africa is a new collection of essays and reportage on sub-Saharan Africa in the 21st century by one of America's shrewdest Africa watchers G. Pascal Zachary. Max Fisher, of the Washington Post, describes Zachary "as one of the most insightful and creative thinkers on Africa we have in the West today." This edition of Hotel Africa corrects typesetting and other glitches in the original version of this pathbreaking work. “Zachary’s vivid rewriting of the African narrative," observes Calestous Juma, of Harvard University, demolishes many old-school misconceptions and will change the way Africa’s future is written.” Writes Steve Haggblade, of Michigan State University, "In these writings on African politics, economics and development, Zachary challenges conventional stereotypes, often from the back of a motorcycle, while wandering about a rural market, or through recounting the everyday adventures of his newest local friend. He illustrates big ideas with colorful, ordinary Africans and provides a perceptive, yet nuanced portrait of many of the central issues facing Africa today." G. Pascal Zachary's articles on Africa have also appeared in The New York Times, Foreign Policy, Fortune, The Wall Street Journal and many other newspapers and magazines. He is a professor of practice at Arizona State University and author of the memoir, Married to Africa: a love story. Zachary edits the blog Africa Works.
