Burkina Faso


In October 2014, huge protests across Burkina Fasosucceeded in overthrowing the long-entrenched regime of their authoritarianruler, Blaise Compaore. Defying all expectations, this popular movement went onto defeat an attempted coup by the old regime, making it possible for atransitional government to organize free and fair elections the following year.In doing so, the people of this previously obscure West African nation surprisedthe world, and their struggle stands as one of the few instances of a populardemocratic uprising succeeding in postcolonial sub-Saharan Africa.

For over three decades, Ernest Harsch has researched and reported from Burkina Faso, interviewing subjects ranging from local democratic activists to revolutionary icon Thomas Sankara, the man once dubbed 'Africa's Che Guevara.' In this book, Harsch provides a compelling history of this little understood country, from the French colonial period to the Compaore regime and the movement that finally deposed him.
