Congratulations to Michael Deibert, whose new book on the trials and tribulations of the Democratic Republic of Congo is ready for publication. Deibert used Kickstarter to fund a final round of reportage last year, allowing four years of research to come to fruition.
The Democratic Republic of Congo: Between Hope and Despair is due out from Zed Books next year.
