Founded in as a refuge for freed African slaves from America, Liberia is a curiosity which became a catastrophe. Also, people pass through noren curtains into shops which are supposedly closed. Both Sinkor and the downtown area of the city itself are laid out in grid patterns. Dalrymple — who achieves the near-impossible by making a book about such barbarism at times amusing — lays much of the blame for what happened at the feet of Western intellectuals and their African counterparts.

      In the wrecked Centennial Hall, the body of a beautiful Steinway grand piano lies on the floor, its legs senselessly sawn off. Liberia's largest generating station, the Mount Coffee hydroelectric plant on the Saint Paul River, is located near Monrovia. However, following the country's civil war, the society also mounted a major campaign in the capital to rehabilitate its zoo, spearheading extensive renovations intended to include a guest house and environmental education center on the zoo grounds. The incumbent president was murdered in his bed, and his cabinet ministers paraded naked through the streets of Monrovia before being summarily executed by firing squad on the beach. He later went to his producer and joked that the film could not be done unless Marguerite Duras was involved in writing the screenplay.

Liberia's railroads are all owned by the country's mining companies, and their kilometers miles of track are used primarily to transport iron ore to Monrovia and Buchanan. Johnson, the viewing of which causes them to giggle with laughter.
