About

Overview

Located in East Africa, the country of Uganda is rich in both history and culture. A former British colony, Uganda experienced several decades of turmoil after gaining its independence in 1962, enduring both military dictatorship and guerrilla insurgency. Today, Uganda has achieved a degree of political and economic stability, but poverty, disease, and climate change pose ongoing problems. Accompanied by full-color photographs and informative sidebars, this comprehensive text teaches readers about the challenges faced by modern Uganda, as well as the history, economy, traditions, and cultural contributions of the Ugandan people.
