Victims and Perpetrators in the South Atlantic
"An important and provocative work. No other study so
thoroughly chronicles the fraught and ambiguous history of memorializing slavery
in the South Atlantic. Araujo’s ability to ‘read’ multiple sources – both discursive
and non-discursive – makes the book truly interdisciplinary in scope. It will be a
crucial starting point for all future studies of slavery and memory in Benin and
Brazil." – James H. Sweet, Journal of African History
Implications for the Nile Basin
Sub-Saharan Africa, the poorest region world-wide, has only recently begun to fully address the issues of meeting the water needs of its rapidly growing population, to reduce the deepening poverty besetting the region and to accelerate economic growth. In this study, the editors address these and other issues surrounding water resources management in all economic and water sectors in Ethiopia within the setting of the Nile Basin, the first comprehensive treatment of this subject.
A Study of Contemporary African Literature
There exists an abundance of deft scholarship and critical analyses, even in the most recent publications by African and Western theorists, of the works of recognized African authors. This volume offers insightful general analysis and critical evaluation of new writers’ works in order to showcase their contributions to the body of African literature. It examines nine contemporary writers whose works (written almost entirely in the colonial languages of English and French) in some way update and refocus African literature for the new century.
This book explores the various facets of the relationship between minorities and the state across Africa. The motivation for this collection lies in the growing need to understand the often tenuous relationship between minorities and the state. Through this collection, the editors and contributors present thoughtful ways for understanding forms of hegemony imposed by dominant groups in relational, national, and regional experiences.
