"Will one of the biggest and bloodiest economic wars of human history decide the future order of the global community?" Bartolomeu Capita's powerful book launches an in-depth exploration of this prescient question posed by Milo Rau, and though the truth might be painful, Capita's solution is enormously empowering. Digging into the disgraceful history of plunder and looting in the Congo Basin, Save the Congo to Stop World War III shines a much-needed light onto the sadistic hidden agenda behind the present plight of the region-and charts a bold course forward for Africans everywhere. Capita shows racism, exclusion, and theft of black heritage are the drivers of the violence and poverty plaguing the Congo and the perpetrators have assigned Angola-with its vast oil riches under the leadership of the puppet couple Isabel dos Santos and Sindika Dokolo-as the mercenary charged with exterminating the native population, leaving the natural resources free for the taking. Although the early stages of WWIII are in motion, it's not too late to change course. It is time for the black race to rise to the occasion and, through self-awareness and reempowerment, become the solution to creating a better world on a global scale.
