Crammed into battered buses and less than road worthy bush taxis,
or hanging on to the back of a series of pollution spewing mopeds,
Tom Coote journeys along the lush but disease ridden Slave Coast of
West Africa and then up through the Saharan trade routes into the
environmentally devastated dust lands of the Sahel. Travelling
through Benin, Togo, Ghana, Burkina Faso and Mali - some of the
poorest and least developed countries in the world - we find
ourselves amidst a battleground of 'end of days' ideologies.
Dealing with such themes as freedom and slavery, the resurgence of
superstition and its threat to rationality, the corporate
colonisation of the unconscious, and the modern day construction of
tradition, this irreverent travelogue will take you to places both
magical and macabre.
