The African Diaspora
Slavery, Modernity, and Globalization TOYIN FALOL A A definitive study of the diaspora in North America. The diaspora is the most important event of African history in the modern age. From the fifteenth century to the present, millions of Africans have been dispersed—forcibly and voluntarily—to other continents, creating large communities of African origin living outside their native land, mostly in North America. Slavery, colonialism, racism, poverty, underdevelopment, and migration are all known legacies of the diaspora, yet how they worked in history to spur this scattering of people is not widely understood. In this definitive study of the diaspora in North America, Toyin Falola offers a causal history of the western dispersion of Africans and its effect on the modern world. Reengaging old and familiar debates and framing new ones that enrich the discourse on the continent, Falola isolates the thread, running nearly six centuries, that connects this history of slavery, the transatlantic slave trade, and contemporary migrations. TOYIN FALOLA is the Frances Higginbotham Nalle Centenial Professor in History and University Distinguished Teaching Professor at the University of Texas–Austin. $85.00/£55.00(s) July 2013 978 1 58046 452 9 21 colour & 48 b/w illus.; 480pp, 23.4 x 15.6 (9 x 6 inches), HB Rochester Studies in African History and the Diaspora

Approaching African History M IC HA EL BRET T Explores how the conception of Africa and its history has changed over time and narrates the story of this vast continent over the past 10,000 years. This book takes as its subject the last 10,000 years of African history, and traces the way in which human society on the continent has evolved from communities of hunters and gatherers to the complex populations of today. Approaching that history from archaeological, ethnographic, written, scriptural, and European dimensions, and finally the present dimension, it also looks at how the history of such a vast region over such a length of time has been presented, and how this history is to be conceived of as well as investigated. The problem itself is historical and an integral part of the history with which it is concerned is the changing awareness over the centuries of what Africa might be. Michael Brett thus traces the history of Africa not only on the ground, but also in the mind, in order to make its own historical contribution to the debate. MICHAEL BRETT is Emeritus Reader in the History of North Africa at SOAS. $90.00/£50.00(s) January 2013 978 1 84701 063 6 366pp, 23.4 x 15.6 (9 x 6 inches), HB

Writing African History Edited by JOH N E DWARD PH I L I PS A comprehensive evaluation of how to read African history. Writing African History is an essential work for anyone who wants to write, or even seriously read, African history. It will replace Daniel McCall’s classic Africa in Time Perspective as the introduction to African history for the next generation and as a reference for professional historians, interested readers, and anyone who wants to understand how African history is written.

A History of Malawi 1859-1966
JOH N M C C R AC K E N A distinguished scholar’s magnum opus and the first full account of Malawi’s colonial history. This is the first comprehensive history of Malawi during the colonial period. Using a wide range of primary and secondary sources, it places this history within the context of the pre-colonial past. The book examines the way in which British people, starting with David Livingstone and including soldiers, speculators, colonial officials and politicians, played an influential part in shaping Malawi. But even more important is the story of how Malawian people responded to the intrusion of colonialism and imperialism and the role they played in the dissolution of the colonial state. There is much here on resistance to colonial occupation, including religious-inspired revolt, on the shaping of the colonial economy, on the influence of Christian missions and on the growth of a powerful popular nationalism that contained within it the seeds of a new authoritarianism. But space is also given to less mainstream activities: the creation of dance societies, the eruption of witchcraft eradication movements and the emergence of football as a popular national sport. In particular, the book seeks to demonstrate the interrelationship between environmental and economic change and the impact these forces had on a poverty-stricken yet resilient Malawian peasantry.

Yorùbá Music in the Twentieth Century Identity, Agency, and Performance Practice B ODE OMOJOL A
Contributors examine how international theatre festivals have been organised and how they have affected the evolution of sustainable theatre. During the last fifty years, large sums of money, huge resources of labour and vast amounts of creative energy have been invested in international theatre festivals in Africa. Under banners such as ‘Reclaiming the African Past’ and ‘African Renaissance’, the festival participants have used the performing arts to address a variety of topical issues and to confront images embedded by a century of patronising colonial expositions. The themes indicate the desire to take history by the forelock, challenge perceptions and transform communities. $34.95/£18.99 November 2012 978 1 84701 057 5 176pp, 21.6 x 14 (8.5 x 5.5 inches), PB African Theatre

Drawing on extensive field research conducted over the course of two decades, Bode Omojola examines traditional and contemporary Yorùbá genres of music. Yorùbá musical traditions have been shaped by individual performers: drummers, dancers, singers, and chanters, who express self-mediated visions of their social and cultural environment. This book explores the role of the performer and the performing group in creating these traditions, contributing to the ongoing reorientation of scholarship on African music towards individual creativity within a larger social network. The author examines both traditional and contemporary Yorùbá genres and addresses a spectrum of social issues, ranging from gender inequality to the impact of Christianity and Islam on Yorùbá musical practice. Throughout, Omojola emphasizes the interrelatedness of the different components of the Yorùbá musical landscape, as well as the role of specific individuals and groups of musicians, who have continued to draw from indigenous Yorùbá musical resources to create new musical forms in the process of engaging the social dynamics of a rapidly changing environment. $85.00/£55.00 December 2012 978 1 58046 409 3 28 b/w & 86 line illus.; 296pp, 23.4 x 15.6 (9 x 6 inches), HB Eastman/Rochester Studies Ethnomusicology

Considered one of Africa’s most innovative and subversive writers, the Zimbabwean novelist, poet, playwright and essayist Dambudzo Marechera is read today as a significant voice in contemporary world literature. Marechera wrote ceaselessly against the status quo, against unqualified ideas, against expectation. He was an intellectual outsider who found comfort only in the company of other free-thinking writers Shelley, Bakhtin, Apuleius, Fanon, Dostoyevsky, Tutuola. It is this universe of literary thought that one can see written into the fiction of Marechera that this collection of essays sets out to interrogate. $34.95/£19.99 January 2013 978 1 84701 062 9 200pp, 23.4 x 15.6 (9 x 6 inches), PB

The Rediscovery of Colonialism in Contemporary German Literature DIR K G OET T S C H E A groundbreaking treatment of the themes of colonialism and Africa in German literary fiction as presented in some fifty novels from the past three decades. In the late 1990s a surge of historical novels about German colonialism in Africa and its previously neglected legacies hit the German literary scene. This development has continued to the present, making colonialism an established literary theme alongside Germany’s dominant memory themes National Socialism and the Holocaust, the former GDR and its demise, and “1968.” This is the first comprehensive study of this intense literary engagement with German colonialism and with Germany’s wider involvement in European colonialism. It brings the hitherto neglected German case to the international debate in postcolonial literary studies.

Radio in Africa
Publics, Cultures, Communities Edited by L I Z GU N N E R , DI NA LIGAGA & DUM I S AN I MOYO Radio is ‘Africa’s medium’, with an ability to transcend barriers to access, facilitate political debate and shape identities. Contributors investigate the multiple roles of radio in the lives of African listeners across the continent. Some essays turn to the history of radio and its part in culture and politics. Others show how radio throws up new tensions, yet endorses social innovation and the making of new publics. A number of contributors look at radio’s current role in creating listening communities that radically shift the nature of the public sphere. Yet others cover radio’s central role in the emergence of informed publics in fragile national spaces, or in failed states. The book also highlights radio’s links to the new media, its role in resistance to oppressive regimes, and points in several cases to the importance of African languages in building modern communities that embrace both local and global knowledge. $80.00/£45.00(s) September 2012 978 1 84701 061 2 336pp, 23.5 x 15.5, HB

South African Representations of HIV/AIDS E L L E N GRÜ NK E M E I E R Examines the South African HIV/AIDS epidemic through creative texts such as novels, photographs, films, cartoons and paintings. South Africa is one of the countries in the world most affected by HIV/AIDS, and yet, until recently, the epidemic was barely visible in South African texts. Much can be gained from approaching the South African epidemic through creative texts because they produce and circulate meanings of HIV/AIDS and its various facets such as its ‘origin’, ‘transmission routes’ and ‘physical manifestations’. Other aspects explored are the denial of HIV/AIDS, its stigmatisation, discriminatory practices, modes of disclosure, access to anti-retroviral medication, as well as the role of alternative treatment.

Women and Slavery in Nineteenth-Century Colonial Cuba SA R AH L. FR ANKLI N Investigates how patriarchy operated in the lives of the women of Cuba, from elite women to slaves. Cuban elites recognized that creating and maintaining the Cuban slave society required a rigid social hierarchy based on race, gender, and legal status. The consequent patriarchy placed both women and slaves among the lower ranks. Based on a variety of archival and printed primary sources, this book investigates how patriarchy operated in the lives of the women of Cuba, from elite women to slaves. Through chapters on motherhood, marriage, education, public charity, and the sale of slaves, insight is gained into the role of patriarchy both as a guiding ideology and lived history in the Caribbean’s longest lasting slave society.

Explores gender and race as principal bases of identity and locations of power and oppression in American history. This collection builds on decades of interdisciplinary scholarship by African American women and gender historians and feminist scholars, bridging the gap between welldeveloped theories of race, gender, and power and the practice of historical research. It reveals the interdependent construction of racial and gender identity in individuals’ lived experiences in specific historical contexts, such as westward expansion, civil rights movements, or economic depression as well as national and transnational debates over marriage, citizenship and sexual mores. All of these essays consider multiple aspects of identity, including sexuality, class, religion, and nationality, among others, but the volume emphasizes gender and race – the focus of our new book series – as principal bases of identity and locations of power and oppression in American history. $75.00/£50.00(s) October 2012 978 1 58046 421 5 7 b/w illus.; 298pp, 23.4 x 15.6 (9 x 6 inches), HB Gender and Race in American History

Explores the diversity of thought and action in women’s involvement in 19th-century reform movements. Though Susan B. Anthony is best remembered for leading the campaign for women’s suffrage, she worked in multiple movements for equality including antislavery and Native American rights. In doing so she forged alliances with other activists seeking to forward a broad social justice agenda. For Anthony and other women activists of the nineteenth century, the fight for equal rights in one social arena was linked to the struggle for those in all others. This book explores the diversity of women’s activism in nineteenth-century American reform movements, focusing on how Anthony and other women reformers shaped those movements and our memories of them. The essays here chart the long career of Anthony in this rich historical context of women’s activism and display the efforts of a wide variety of women, and the challenges they faced, in the continued struggle for equality. $75.00/£50.00(s) December 2012 978 1 58046 425 3 3 b/w illus.; 256pp, 23.4 x 15.6 (9 x 6 inches), HB Gender and Race in American History

Manhood Enslaved reconstructs the lives of three male captives to bring greater intellectual and historical clarity to the muted lives of enslaved peoples in eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century central New Jersey, the Somerset County area, where blacks were held in bondage for nearly two centuries. It contributes to an evolving body of historical scholarship arguing that the lives of bondpeople in America were shaped not only by the powerful forces of racial oppression, but also by their own notions of gender.

The Reverend Jennie Johnson and African Canadian History, 1868-1967 NI NA RE I D - M ARONEY The first scholarly treatment of this fascinating and understudied figure. Jennie Johnson was a black Baptist preacher and the first ordained woman to serve in Canada.

Photography in Africa Ethnographic Perspectives
African Hosts and their Guests Cultural Dynamics of Tourism Edited by WALT E R VAN BE E K & A N N ET TE S C H M I DT
Edited by RIC HARD VOKES
Africa is a ‘theme park’ for Western tourists to experience untouched wilderness, untamed nature, and truly ‘authentic’ cultures, where the hosts, too, are part of a discourse about the ‘other’ and ourselves.
Gives an ethnographic account of the complexities of the use of photography in Africa, both historically and in contemporary practice. This collection of studies in African photography examines, through a series of empirically rich historical and ethnographic cases, the variety of ways in which photographs are produced, circulated, and engaged across a range of social contexts. In so doing, it elucidates the distinctive characteristics of African photographic practices and cultures, vis-à-vis those of other forms of ‘vernacular photography’ worldwide. In addition, these studies develop a reflexive turn, examining the history of academic engagement with these African photographic cultures, and reflecting on the distinctive qualities of the ethnographic method as a means for studying such phenomena. The volume critically engages current debates in African photography and visual anthropology. First, it extends our understanding of the variety of ways in which both colonial and post-colonial states in Africa have used photography as a means for establishing, and projecting, their authority. Second, it moves discussion of African photography away from an exclusive focus on the role of the ‘the studio’ and looks at the circulations through which the studios’ products – the photographs themselves – later pass as artefacts of material culture. Last, it makes an important contribution to our understanding of the relationship between photography and ethnographic research methods, as these have been employed in Africa.
For Western tourists Africa embodies the Romantic ideal of ‘nature’, where they go to have adventures in the game parks and encounters with colourful cultures and picturesque people. In the long list from slavery to colonialism and from liberation to globalisation, international tourism is one of the latest global dynamics engaging the people on the continent, but the agency of the receiving partners is much larger than it was in the colonies. The differences stand out in what constitutes the heart of this book, the encounter in the field between ‘hosts’ and ‘guests’. $90.00/£50.00(s) September 2012 978 1 84701 049 0 32 b/w illus.; 352pp, 25.4 x 17.8 (10 x 7 inches), HB

Ethnicity in Zimbabwe
Transformations in Kalanga and Ndebele Societies, 1860-1990 E NO C E NT M SI N D O A comparative study of identity shifts in two large ethnic groups in Matabeleland, Zimbabwe. The study begins in 1860, a year after the establishment of the Inyati mission station in the Ndebele Kingdom, and ends in the postcolonial period. Enocent Msindo asserts that – despite what many social historians have argued – the creation of ethnic identity in Matabeleland was not solely the result of colonial rule and the new colonial African elites, but that African ethnic consciousness existed prior to this time, formed and shaped by ordinary members of these ethnic groups. During this period, the interaction of the Kalanga and Ndebele fed the development of complex ethnic, regional, cultural, and subnationalist identities. By examining the complexities of these identities, Msindo uncovers hidden, alternative, and unofficial histories; contested claims to land and civic authority; the politics of language; the struggles of communities defined as underdogs; and the different ways by which the dominant Ndebele have dealt with the Kalanga. The book ultimately demonstrates the ways in which debates around ethnicity and other identities in Zimbabwe relate to issues in its past and present.

South African pioneer, poet and abolitionist Reveals the role this key Enlightenment figure played in Africa and Britain. Honoured in South Africa as the ‘father of South African poetry’ and for achieving a free press, as one of the early settlers of Cape Colony and as a fighter for their democratic rights, in Scotland as the founding editor of Blackwood’s Magazine and a key figure in the Enlightenment, and in England as Secretary of the Anti-Slavery Society and as instrumental in bringing in abolition, Thomas Pringle (1789-1834) has not yet had the attention he deserves.

Yet he had overlapping identities as a world citizen, citizen of the British empire and Ethiopian nationalist, living in many different countries but never wholly belonging in any one. First employed in the Indian civil service he subsequently served as a physician to three Ethiopian emperors. The climax of his long career came when, as ambassador to England, he was a key figure in mobilizing world opinion against Italy’s invasion of Ethiopia.

A Life under Two Flags
Eldred Durosimi Jones is known internationally as having helped establish the study of African writing in the new universities of Africa, Britain and North America. Born in 1925, the account of his early years gives a vivid picture of growing up in Freetown in the latter days of British colonial rule. After studying at the historic CMS Grammar School and Fourah Bay College, with further studies at Oxford, Eldred Jones committed himself to his own country and it was appropriate that for over thirty years he was successively Lecturer, Professor, Principal and Pro-Vice-Chancellor of Fourah Bay College in Freetown. He was founding editor of African Literature Today, and his book Othello’s Countrymen introduced Africa into Shakespeare studies. He lost his sight in his middle years and this book, like all his later written work, has been brought to the page by his wife Marjorie Jones. ELDRED DUROSIMI JONES is Emeritus Professor of English Language and Literature, recipient of the Royal Society of Arts Silver Medal, Honorary Fellow, Corpus Christi College, Oxford, and joint winner (with MARJORIE JONES) of the African Studies Association of the UK Distinguished Africanist Award. $50.00/£30.00(s) November 2012 978 1 84701 055 1 16 b/w illus.; 188pp, 21.6 x 14 (8.5 x 5.5 inches), HB
Edward Wilmot Blyden and the Racial Nationalist Imagination TESHA L E T I BE BU A critical study of one of the most prolific black-world intellectuals of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Focusing on his writings, this book shows the contradictions, ambiguities, complexities, and paradoxes in Edward Wilmot Blyden’s powerful black racial nationalism. Blyden was a modernist who called upon African Americans to “uplift” Africa; yet he was a defender of Africa’s culture and customs. He was a sophisticated critic of Eurocentrism; yet he was an avid Anglophile. He was a Protestant who admired Islam’s “civilizing” role in Africa. Blyden was the first black intellectual to advocate for the symbiosis of Africa’s “triple heritage”: indigenous, Islamic, and Western. His voluminous writings laid the groundwork for some of the most important ideas of African and black diasporic thinkers of the twentieth century, including Frantz Fanon, Amilcar Cabral, Chiekh Anta Diop, Aimé Césaire, and Walter Rodney.

Foundations of an African Civilisation
Aksum and the northern Horn, 1000 BC - AD 1300 DAVI D W. PH I L L I PS ON A single coherent narrative of Aksumite civilisation revealing the roots of medieval Christian Ethiopia. This book focuses on the pre-Aksumite and Aksumite states of the first millennium AD in northern Ethiopia and southern Eritrea, their development, florescence and eventual transformation into the so-called medieval civilisation of Christian Ethiopia. It applies a common methodology, utilising archaeology, art history, written documents and oral tradition from a wide variety of sources; the result is a far greater emphasis on continuity than previous studies have revealed. It is thus a major re-interpretation of a key development in Ethiopia’s past, while raising and discussing methodological issues of the relationship between archaeology and other historical disciplines; these issues, which have theoretical significance extending far beyond Ethiopia, are discussed in full.

Colonialism and Violence in Zimbabwe A History of Suffering H EIK E I. S C H M I DT A study that contributes to three fields of investigation: violence, memory, and landscape. Heike Schmidt challenges the apparently inseparable twin pairing of Africa and suffering. Even in situations of great distress, she argues, individuals and groups may articulate their social desires and political ambitions, and reforge their identities – as long as the experience of violence is not one of sheer terror. She emphasizes the crucial role women, chiefs, and youths played in the renegotiation of a sense of belonging during different periods of time. Based on sustained fieldwork, Colonialism and Violence offers a compelling history of suffering in a small valley in Zimbabwe over the course of 150 years. At the same time, it is a highly original treatment of significant topics in African Studies and beyond: violence, colonialism, landscape, memory, and religion. HEIKE SCHMIDT is visiting professor for African History and Society at the Department of African Studies, Vienna University.
South Africa and the World Economy
Remaking Race, State, and Region W I L L IAM G. M ART I N Chronicles the volatile history of South Africa’s economic resurgence. Once an international pariah, South Africa has emerged as a respected and influential African state, projecting its economic and political power across the continent. Contrasting with much of the latest scholarship, which examines South Africa as a discrete national case, this volume places the country in the global social system, analyzing its relationships with the colonial powers and white settlers of the early twentieth century, the costs of the neoliberal alliances with the North, and the more recent challenges from the East. This approach offers a bold reinterpretation of South Africa’s developmental successes and failures over the last century, as well as clear yet contentious lessons for the present. WILLIAM G.

African Police and Soldiers in Colonial Zimbabwe, 1923-80
Examines the 20th century silicosis crisis in the South African mining industry, and reveals how the rate of tuberculosis among black migrant miners was hidden for over a century.
European colonial rule in Africa could not have been maintained without African participation in the police and army. In Southern Rhodesia, lack of white manpower meant that blacks played an increasingly prominent role in law enforcement and military operations and from World War II constituted a majority within the regular security forces. As they were called upon to perform more specialized tasks, they acquired greater education and some became part of the emerging westernized middle class. Tim Stapleton clarifies the complicated dynamic and legacy of black military personal who served during colonial rule in present-day Zimbabwe. TIMOTHY STAPLETON is professor of history at Trent University in Ontario.
This book reveals how the South African mining industry, abetted by the state, hid a pandemic of silicosis for almost a century, and allowed workers infected with the potentially fatal tuberculosis to spread disease to rural communities in South Africa and to labour-sending states. The first crisis of 1896-1912, which focused on minority white workers, resulted in the mining industry investing heavily in reducing dust and South Africa became renowned for its mine safety. The second began in 2000 with mounting scientific evidence that the disease rate among black migrant miners is more than a hundred times higher than officially acknowledged. It has provoked class actions for compensation. JOCK MCCULLOCH was a Legislative Research Specialist for the Australian parliament and has taught at various universities. His books include Asbestos Blues.

The Business of Black Power
Community Development, Capitalism, and Corporate Responsibility in Postwar America Edited by L AUR A WARREN HIL L & J U LIA R ABIG Explores business development in the Black Power era and the centrality of economic goals to the larger black freedom movement. This book uniquely emphasizes the centrality of economic goals to the larger black freedom movement and explores the myriad forms of business development in the Black power era. In doing so it charts a new course for Black power studies and business history, exploring both the business ventures that Black power fostered and the impact of Black power on the nation’s business world. Black activists pressed business leaders, corporations, and various levels of government into supporting a range of economic development ventures, from Black entrepreneurship, to grassroots experiments in economic self-determination, to indigenous attempts to rebuild inner-city markets in the wake of disinvestment. They pioneered new economic and development strategies but were also engaged in some fierce debates over the role of business in strengthening the movement. $29.95/£19.99(s) June 2012 978 1 58046 440 6 354pp, 23.4 x 15.6 (9 x 6 inches), PB

The Economics of Ethnic Conflict
Liberation Movements in Power
A N DR EAS DAFI NGE R
Analyses the ZANU-PF in Zimbabwe, SWAPO in Namibia and the ANC in South Africa and to what extent their promises of democracy have been effected.
The Case of Burkina Faso Investigates development practice, civil organization formation and the increase of ethnically motivated conflicts over the past two decades in Western Africa. This richly detailed anthropological account of the policies and practices of Burkina Faso, set against the background of the region’s developing economies and cross-border conflicts, examines the social, economic and political transformation of Western Africa. Behind the screen of ethnic conflicts, lie vibrant ‘concealed economies’ that have led to new economic and political practices at almost all levels of national and civil administration. In these ‘concealed economies’ individuals exploit the ethnic divide by hiding friendly and profitable inter-ethnic relations behind a rhetoric of ethnic tensions and staged conflict.

Dealing with Government in South Sudan Histories in the Making of Chiefship, Community and State C H E RRY L E ONARDI
Regional Integration, Identity and Citizenship in the Greater Horn of Africa Edited by KI DANE M E NGI ST E AB & R EDIE BE RE K ET E AB Examines how regional integration can resolve the crises of the Greater Horn of Africa. The Greater Horn of Africa (GHA) is engulfed by three interrelated crises: various inter-state wars, civil wars, and inter-communal conflicts; an economic crisis manifested in widespread debilitating poverty, chronic food insecurity and famines; and environmental degradation that is ravaging the region. The contributors to this volume address the need for regional integration in the GHA in order to tackle this three-pronged crisis. They identify those factors that can foster integration as well as those that impede it; explain how regional integration can mitigate the conflicts; and examine how integration can help to energise the region’s economy. $50.00/£30.00(s) October 2012 978 1 84701 058 2 280pp, 21.6 x 13.8 (8.5 x 5.4 inches), HB
Explores various aspects of chiefly authority in South Sudan from its historical origins and evolution under colonial, postcolonial and military rule, to its current roles and value in the newly independent country. Chiefs in South Sudan have become the focus of much attention in recent years as national and international policy-makers attempt to build peace and design structures of government in the newly independent nation. Created during the colonial period, chiefship in South Sudan originated out of a much longer process by which local communities sought to mediate with predatory external forces. Chiefship has survived despite war and the collapse of the state. This study will be of particular importance not only to scholars of Sudan, of Africa and of local governance, but also to policy-makers and practitioners working in South Sudan. CHERRY LEONARDI is a Lecturer in African History at the University of Durham, a former course director of the Rift Valley Institute’s Sudan course, and a member of the council of the British Institute in Eastern Africa. An extraordinarily timely study of the political history of what has very recently become South Sudan. PROF ES S OR CHAR LES AM BL E R , U NI VER SI T Y OF T EX AS AT EL PAS O

From the Pit to the Market Politics and the Diamond Economy in Sierra Leone DIA NE FROST Argues that corporate neo-colonialism in the diamond trade of Sierra Leone has served to restrict its social and economic growth, continuing its reliance on international aid. Diamonds have played an important role in the political economy of Sierra Leone, as was highlighted by the use of ‘conflict’ or ‘blood’ diamonds in the decade-long civil war. Yet their role is larger than this. Exploited by global business interests, whose corporate neo-colonialist predation has led to continued deprivation and reliance on aid, Sierra Leone’s diamonds have also been used to finance factions in Lebanon’s civil war, criminal networks in the US and Russia, and al-Qaeda. This study will be of importance not only for scholars of African studies, but for NGOs and those with a wider interest in development.

China’s increasing role as an education donor in Africa, and the significance of this both economically and politically. Why does China run one of the world’s largest short-term training programmes, with plans to bring 30,000 Africans to China between 2013 and 2015? Why does it give generous support to 24 Confucius Institutes teaching Mandarin and Chinese culture at many of Africa’s top universities from the Cape to Cairo? Why is China one of the very few countries to increase the number of full scholarships for Africans to study in its universities, a total of 18,000 anticipated between 2013 and 2015. While its dramatic economic and trade impact, particularly on Africa, has caught global attention, little focus has yet been given to China’s role as an education donor - and especially to the critical role of China’s support for training and human resource development for Africans in China, and within Africa itself. It is vital that we understand what is going on, and why education is so important in China-Africa relations. Here is hard evidence from Egypt, Cameroon, Ethiopia, South Africa and Kenya of the dramatic growth of China’s soft power and increasing impact in capacity-building, and of the implications of this for Africa, China and the world.

A comprehensive study of how and why, despite bright prospects in 1991, Eritrea has turned into one of the world’s most authoritarian, militarised, isolated, and human rights-abusing states. Twenty-odd years after Eritrea gained independence, here is an examination of how the prospects for democracy in the new state have turned to ash. A comprehensive and detailed analysis of the militarised ‘garrison state’, this book examines Eritrea’s development, and in particular the loss of human rights and the state’s political organisation. Beginning with judicial development in independent Eritrea, chapters scrutinise the rule of law and the court system; the hobbled process of democratisation, and the curtailment of civil society; the Eritrean prison system and everyday life of detention and disappearances; and the situation of minorities in the country, first in general terms and then through exploration of a case study of the Kunama ethnic groups.

In their fascinating new collection of essays, african Hosts and their guests: cultural dynamics of tourism (James Currey), Walter van Beek (professor of anthropology at Tilburg University) and Annette Schmidt (archaeologist and curator of the African department at the National Museum of Ethnology in Leiden) discuss tourism in Africa with specific emphasis on the interaction between hosts and guests. As they explain in their illuminating article, tourism in Africa has a
very specific character, different to all other destinations: rather than culture, cities, monuments or beaches, it is “Wildness” that is first and foremost. They explain who fulfils the role of host to the tourists, what their agendas may be, how they understand and manipulate tourists’ commonly held, stereotypical ideas, and the importance of viewing these encounters as dynamic examples of cultural change. read more
