Afrika, mein Leben : Erinnerungen einer Unbeugsamen by Wangari Maathai( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2018 in German and Undetermined and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Als Wangari Maathai mit dem Friedensnobelpreis geehrt wurde, feierte sie ganz Afrika. Nun erzählt sie die außergewöhnliche Geschichte ihres Lebens. 1940 in einem Kikuyu-Dorf am Fuße des Mount Kenya geboren, ergreift sie die Chance, in den USA und München Biologie und Veterinärmedizin zu studieren. Zurück in Kenia wird sie die erste Professorin des Landes und die erste grüne Politikerin Afrikas. Sie gründet das Umweltschutzprogramm "Green Belt Movement", das über die Jahrzehnte zu einer panafrikanischen Bewegung wird. Doch ihr Engagement bringt ihr nicht nur Zustimmung ein. Der damalige Präsident Arap-Moi lässt sie viele Male verhaften, schickt seine Polizisten, wenn sie sich schützend vor den Regenwald stellt. Die Frauenverbände beschimpfen sie, weil sie ihre Auflehnung gegen die Männer ungehörig finden, und ihr Ehemann verlässt sie und ihre drei Kinder, weil sie "zu eigensinnig und zu schwer zu kontrollieren" sei. "Afrika, mein Leben" erzählt bildhaft und anekdotenreich die Lebensgeschichte einer charismatischen Frau, die Hoffnung in die Welt trägt
Un défi pour l'Afrique : essai by Wangari Maathai( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Avec la détermination et l'enthousiasme qui la caractérisent, le Prix Nobel Wangari Maathai prône de semer des arbres autant que des idées. C'est sur le continent noir que commence cette croisade. Les Africains sont aux avant-postes de la protection de la planète. Ils ne doivent pas attendre que les gouvernements ou les agences d'aide internationale interviennent pour agir. En farouche militante pour la démocratie et pour l'environnement, Wangari Maathai exhorte la population, culturellement déracinée, â entreprendre une révolution morale pour enfin accéder â la paix et â la croissance. Elle multiplie les appels â l'action en direction des Etats, qu'elle encourage â s'unir ainsi qu'à prendre leurs responsabilités. Elle, qui jamais ne renonce, offre une perspective lumineuse sur les défis que l'Afrique doit aujourd'hui relever. Le sort de leur terre est plus que jamais entre les mains des Africains
