Table of Contents

Preliminary Contents 1. 45419 Plenty of Oil, a Forgotten War and New Hope, That's Cabinda,Peter Kagwanja, The Nation , August 4, 2006 The tiny Cabinda enclave accounts for close to 65 percent of Angola's oil, amounting to more than 80 percent of the country's revenues. But the province, which has fought for three decades to secede, remains one of the poorest in Angola. A recently signed peace deal preserves Angola's territorial unity while granting special status to this oil rich northern province. 2. 45421 Post Apartheid Vineyards: Land Redistribution Begins to Transform South Africa's Wine Country,William Moseley, Dollars & Sense , January/February 2006 The African National Congress (ANC) promised to redress the legacy of discriminatory land ownership policies in the farming sector through a land redistribution program that facilitates the transfer of land from whites to blacks. While this program has its problems, South Africa's wine country now has a handful of worker co-owned vineyards. If American and European consumers support a growing market for such wines, this will encourage more white farmers to go into partnership with their workers. 3. 45428 ABCs of AIDS Prevention,Jessica Weisberg, Dollars & Sense , January/February 2005 Uganda has been widely recognized for its successes in stemming the AIDS crisis, but its policies fail to address the inequalities that make women vulnerable to the disease. More women than men have become infected with HIV since Uganda renowned ABC (Abstience, Be faithful and Condoms) policy was implemented. 4. 47472 The Fight to Save Congo's Forests,Christian Parenti, The Nation , October 22, 2007 The rainforests of the Congo Basin are home to an estimated 40 million people who depend upon it for their traditional livelihoods. Ecologically, the rainforests also play a major role in trapping carbon dioxide, a key culprit in global warming. In recent years the future of the rainforest has been threatened by timber companies, often with the support of development bodies such as the World Bank, that seek to harvest the valuable hardwoods the forests contain. The Democratic Republic of the Congo has been unable to regulate the pressure on the forests due to the lack of an effective plan for forest management and widespread corruption. The leaders in the fight to preserve the forests are frequently small, non-profit, non-governmental organizations. 5. 47473 Space, Time, and Timbuktu,Mark de Villiers and Sheila Hirtle, Natural History , July/August 2007 The legendary city of Tmbuktu on the Sahara's southern fringe in the modern state of Mali has a rich history of commercial, intellectual, and religious wealth. Evidence of this legacy as an important can still be seen throughout the city today. Today, however, Timbuktu exists as a frontier on the margins of the Sahara; it lies in Tuareg country and it lacks not only political influence, but even a paved road connecting it with the better-watered and more populated regions to the south. 6. 47474 Dry: Three Stories of Adaptation to Life Without Water,Daniel Schaffer et al, Environment , January/February 2007 Up to a billion people live in the world's dry regions and, for these societies, access to water is key to their livelihood. The Maasai, nomadic pastoralists of East Africa, are one such people. Maasai cultural values regarding access to water frequently
