The ''disturbance-loving species'' are well-meaning Americans in Africa, men and women born into privilege who unaccountably decide to become teachers in Niger or research dysentery in Kenya. Like Africa-philes throughout literature, they puzzle endlessly over their attraction to the continent, but in the case of Peter Chilson’s Disturbance-Loving Species reach no particularly fresh conclusions.
