Un cas résume à lui seul toute l'ampleur et l'ambiguïté de ces relatives d'" interdépendance ": le Gabon, petit émirat équatorial gorgé de pétrole et d'autres ressources stratégiques. l. a. minutieuse enquête menée par Pierre Péan à partir de cette plaque-tournante des enjeux franco-africains révèle que sure néocolonialisme risque de n'être plus aujourd'hui à sens designated, et que los angeles politique de Paris n'est pas à l'abri des pressions de lobbies ou de chantages aux renversements d'alliances...

Chronique d'un quart de siècle de kinfolk franco-africaines, ce livre ne constitue pas un mince chapitre de l'histoire secrète de l. a. Ve République.
