French term or phrase:A lire et méditer...
If anyone can come up with a neat English rendering of the lead in to this paragraph I'd be most obliged...
A lire et méditer, à l’heure où les espoirs de paix, de relance économique et de bien-être pour les populations africaines reposent sur les épaules de quelques personnes qui n’ont pas d’autre alternative que celle d’oser la démocratie
You can choose what you like...if you can't see that the sentence is dangling and has no subject...OK..so you'll let it dangle. Most literary and formal writing in English can't just be a sentence starting..."Food for thought" without saying what it is!
