Reviews

“These two volumes in the "African Histories and Modernities" series, designed to provide a voice for African scholarship, do just that. … This important book makes it clear that the future is still up for grabs, but that the current generation of scholars owns the past. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.” (W. Arens, Choice, Vol. 54 (3), November, 2016)
