White Malice: The CIA and the Covert Recolonization of Africa is a book that dives into the archives, revealing new, shocking details of America’s covert program in Africa. The CIA crawled over the continent, poisoning the hopes of 1958 with secret agents and informants; surreptitious UN lobbying; cultural infiltration and bribery; assassinations and coups. As the colonizers moved out, the Americans swept in—with bitter consequences that reverberate in Africa to this day. Celebrate the paperback release of White Malice with Susan Williams and Dan Magaziner in conversation.
Dan Magaziner is Professor of History and African Studies at Yale. The author of two books, he is currently completing a biography of the South African artist and activist Omar Badsha. Dan is the editor of the forthcoming Oxford Handbook on South African History.
