The Wizard of the Nile
Green is a journalist based in East Africa with an ambition to interview Joseph Kony. He gives us an insight into the history of the conflict in Northern Uganda and explains why Kony is now facing prosecution by the ICC. And eventually, he gets to meet his man...
Really good book - very well written and accessible with a good explanation of the complex recent history and troubles that the Ugandan people have faced. He gets to know some of the people involved pretty well and presents their personal issues and problems in a very non-judgmental way.
