Sub-Saharan Africa

Rarely has a continent seen a combination of such widespread anguish and determined hope as that experienced in much of Sub-Saharan Africa, once the superpower rivalry which had divided it since the 1960s was no more. Stagnant as it had been, under the weight of dictatorial power – whether allied to Moscow or Washington – the region emerged from the Cold War with the determination to see overnight change. In exceptional cases, this was partially achieved. In much of the continent, however, turmoil erupted. Mark Huband travelled ceaselessly, an observer and reporter whose accounts of emergent democracy and vibrant cultures are matched by his powerful coverage of the Liberian civil war, the Somali famine and the Rwandan genocide. Through his eyewitness reporting and careful analysis, he provided newspaper readers with unique insights into some of the most dramatic and devastating events the world has ever seen.
