Summary

In the Congo, a country rich with diamonds, gold, copper, uranium, oil, and timber, the average worker was reduced to a living income of $120 a year under the rule of Mobutu. This is a brilliant journalistic account set amid the heart of the apocalypse--a nation plunged back to the Iron Age, whose citizens miraculously continue to survive. 8-page photo insert.
