Sebastiao Salgado. Africa
Sebastiao Salgado is one the most respected photojournalists working today, his reputation forged by decades of dedication and powerful black-and-white images of dispossessed and distressed people taken in places where most wouldn't dare to go. Although he has photographed throughout South America and around the globe, his work most heavily concentrates on Africa, where he has shot more than 40 reportage works over a period of 30 years. From the Dinka tribes in Sudan and the Himba in Namibia to gorillas and volcanoes in the lakes region to displaced peoples throughout the continent, Salgado shows us all facets of African life today. Whether he's documenting refugees or vast landscapes, Salgado knows exactly how to grab the essence of a moment so that when one sees his images one is involuntarily drawn into them. His images artfully teach us the disastrous effects of war, poverty, disease, and hostile climatic conditions.
This book brings together Salgado's photos of Africa in three parts. The first concentrates on the southern part of the continent (Mozambique, Malawi, Angola, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Namibia), the second on the Great Lakes region (Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya), and the third on the Sub-Saharan region (Burkina Faso, Mali, Sudan, Somalia, Chad, Mauritania, Senegal, Ethiopia). Texts are provided by renowned Mozambique novelist Mia Couto, who describes how today's Africa reflects the effects of colonization as well as the consequences of economic, social, and environmental crises.
This stunning book is not only a sweeping document of Africa but an homage to the continent's history, people, and natural phenomena.

Cape Verde Islands: Berlitz Pocket Guide
This brand new Berlitz Pocket Guide provides all the information you need to enjoy the up-and-coming tourist hotspot that is the Cape Verde Islands, in a handy and genuinely pocketable format. Whether you want to find fantastic hiking trails and world class windsurfing spots, or simply immerse yourself in the most spectacular mountain scenery and deserted beach landscapes on offer, this guide captures everything there is to see and do. Colour-coded sections allow you to locate the information you need quickly and full-colour, fold-out maps provide instant orientation wherever you are, making this guide ideal for on-the-spot-reference. The Top 10 attractions are highlighted on a dedicated, double-page spread, capturing everything you simply can't afford to miss and ensuring you make the most of your stay. Explore the waters surrounding Maio for shipwrecks dating back to the 16th century and spot the endangered loggerhead turtles from the island of Boa Vista. Other recommendations include Santiago, the largest island and seat of government, Sao Vicente for the Mindelo carnival in February and Sao Filipe, one of Cape Verde's loveliest towns with cobbled streets and leafy squares on the island of Fogo. A dedicated "Eating Out" section provides information on local Creole cuisine and the concise "History" section will help you truly get to the heart of these beautiful islands and their unique heritage, from colonisation to the present day. An invaluable "Travel Tips" section provides an A-Z summary of practical information, covering accommodation for all budgets, transport, climate, health and much more. It also includes travel information that the brochures fail to mention, for example on enchanting Brava, the smallest inhabited island, visitors are warned that although well worth a visit the lack of an aerodrome presents something of an obstacle "with the ferry service a choppy one hour crossing in a small boat with an exposed deck and you can expect to be drenched by the end of it". You will find full-colour photographs accompanying the text throughout, making this guide truly a pleasure to read before, during and after your visit....
