Nigeria : a new history of a turbulent century by Richard Bourne( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,061 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known as the African Giant, Nigeria's story is complex and often contradictory. How, despite the ravages of colonialism, civil war, ongoing economic disappointment and most recently the Boko Haram insurgency, has the country managed to stay together for a hundred years? Why, despite an abundance of oil, mineral and agricultural wealth, have so many of its people remained in poverty? These are the key questions explored by Richard Bourne in this account of Nigeria's history, from its creation in 1914 to the historic 2015 elections and beyond. Featuring a wealth of original research and interviews, this is an insight into the shaping of a country where, despite the seemingly dashed optimism that was raised at independence, there remains hope 'the Nigeria project' may still succeed
Lula of Brazil : the story so far by Richard Bourne( )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's dramatic life story has captured the imagination of millions, and his progressive politics have brought hope and excitement to Brazil - and the world. This work is the first major English language biography of the metalworker who became president of Latin America's largest and most powerful country. In a clearly written, detailed narrative, Richard Bourne describes Lula's childhood hardships in an impoverished family, his days as a revered trade unionist, and the strike movement that brought down Brazil's military dictatorship. The book chronicles Lula's campaigns for the presidency, his first term in office beginning in 2002, a major corruption scandal, and his reelection in 2006. Throughout, Lula of Brazil connects this charismatic leader's life to larger issues, such as the difficulty of maintaining a progressive policy in an era of globalization. Brazil's contemporary history, parallels with other developing countries and other world leaders, the conservatism of Brazilian society, and other themes provide a rich backdrop for assessing the struggles, achievements, and failures of this major figure on both the Brazilian and the world stage."--Jacket
Catastrophe : what went wrong in Zimbabwe? by Richard Bourne( )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"No one in 1980 could have guessed that Zimbabwe would become a failed state on such a monumental and tragic scale. In this incisive and revealing book, Richard Bourne shows how a country that had every prospect of success when it achieved independence became a brutal police state less than thirty years later, plagued by hyperinflation and collapsing life expectancy and abandoned by a third of its citizens. Beginning with the British conquest and covering events up to the present precarious political situation, Catastrophe is the most comprehensive, up-to-date and readable account of the ongoing crisis in Zimbabwe. Bourne shows that Zimbabwe's tragedy is not just about Mugabe's 'evil' but about history, Africa today and the world's attitudes towards it."--Page [4] of book cover
