Democratic Cannibalism--African Absurdities III is a book of satirical articles by Hama Tuma firing at tyrants and double standards in Africa and the world at large.

Abstract:
In this, the third collection of African Absurdities, Hama Tuma writes with his usual irreverence and satire on the foibles of tyrants and the sad realities of the world. Nothing is off limits – Hama writes of Africa, Iraq, Afghanistan, of a German cannibal, Aristide of Haiti and the new Back to Africa Movement, of Darfur and the Janjaweeds, of actor politicians, baby snatchers and self declared saviors of Africa, of absurd Somalistan and a Swazi king, of a Fijian coup maker and necessity measures, of philosophers of the unknown and of Bush and Osama, of Czars and lean beggars. Hama Tuma has also included articles specific to Ethiopia and another section to cast a light on his views on the role of the Africa writer. And yes, Hama Tuma is once again wailing about dogs and pets with designer sweaters, first class hospitals and hotels.

  Hama Tuma's wit , 02/26/2007
Reviewer: James Hamlin
I have read the previous two African Absurdities book by Hama Tuma and I have found them to be hilarious and also sad/that is Hama Tuma for you/, enjoyable and educational.This third title is "more evil" than the previous two and very much Hama Tuma. It is a book you should read for satire, for wit, for information and political awareness. Thank you Hama Tuma wherever you may be.Let number four come to us.

  A brillant book , 07/13/2007
Reviewer: James Dizmade
As a fan of Hama Tuma, I must be excused if I find ll of Hama Tuma's books, ranging from the case of the Socialist Witchdoctor up to Democratic Cannibalism as treasures of modern African satire. Democratic Cannibalism is the latest offering and what a feast.I urge all to buy and read this book.Thre is hope for Africa and Tuma is one of them.
