Signalman Publishing Announces Release of Germany's African Slaves: The Untold Story of African Refugees in a Hostile Climate

New book documenting the plight of African refugees in Germany is an important resource for historians, policy makers, and anyone else interested in this vast but under-reported movement of people.
    KISSIMMEE, FL, July 11, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Signalman Publishing is pleased to announce the release in paperback and as an ebook for the Amazon Kindle, the Barnes & Noble nook, and the Apple iBookstore of "Germany's African Slaves: The untold story of African refugees in a hostile climate" by Kwaku A. Poku of Orlando, Florida.

In a fascinating look at a vast movement of people from Africa to Germany over the second half of the 20th century, journalist Kwaku A. Poku documents these trends on a very personal level. An African refugee himself, he reports from "the inside" with access to people who came to Germany out of desperation to make a better life, yet they find something far from "ideal". In a narrative that is sometimes chilling, and other times heartbreaking, the reader will be left with a better understanding of the struggles that people undertake in search of a better life. This work fills an important void in the history of refugee movements and will undoubtedly be a valuable resource for historians, academics and anyone else interested in this topic of African refugees in Germany.

John McClure, president of Signalman Publishing, stated, "Kwaku Poku does a great service for those without much of a voice - the refugees at the edge of an otherwise very prosperous society. He
tells their story in this book with eloquence and sensitivity and with a broad knowledge of policy and historical context. We are honored to have partnered with him in publishing this very important work."

"Germany's African Slaves" (ISBN: 978-1-940145-07-5, Trade Paper, 208 pages, $14.99, Non-fiction/History) from indie book publisher Signalman, is available on Amazon, Barnes & and wherever fine books are sold.
