Vol. 1: Creating a New Paradigm, 2001–03
At the turn of the 21st century, Alodia was a struggling, debt-saddled, former French colony in West Africa. Its agriculture and industry functioned well below their capacity; it had a large and growing population of AIDS victims; it had deepened its peoples suffering in order to secure debt relief; its natural environment had been deeply degraded. However, Alodia differs in one significant respect from all the other nations in such straits: it is fictional.
With "primary sources"—newspaper and magazine articles, photos and behind-the-scenes glimpses—this book tells the story of Alodia's transformation from within by means of "vision, education and common sense."
