Missionaries, Mercenaries and Misfits

Missionaries, Mercenaries and Misfits will make us re-imagine our world and our place in it, and force us to reconsider the value of “development” and what it really means to the people of Africa. The essays in this book come from various writers, most of whom are either based in East Africa, or are part of its diaspora, or who have worked, often as developmentalists in their own way, within Africa.
