Emerging perspectives on Chinua Achebe( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation The whole world is currently undergoing a period of profound change brought about by the development of the worldwide information and communications network, the Internet, which affects every sphere of social life. This book focuses specifically on ethical questions related to the use of the Internet in West Africa. It examines the manner in which the spread of the Internet in Africa raises serious ethical issues; issues that should be identified to ensure that, in the future, the adaptation and integration of Internet technology will be compatible with the development of Africa. The research behind this book which was carried out by means of field surveys, focuses on five nations in West Africa: two Anglophone-The Gambia and Ghana, and three Francophone-Burkina Faso, Cote d'Ivoire, and Senegal. For each country, a portrait of Internet users' ethical behaviors was successfully created. The book demonstrates how the Internet, by virtue of its content and technology, is creating an upheaval in the practice and modes of communication within African communities. The book concludes with a proposed ethical model for the assimilation of the Internet that could serve as a reference for development policies in each of the respective countries surveyed and, more broadly, throughout Africa. This work is the result of a research project initiated by the Dakar office of Canada's International Development Research Centre (IDRC), in collaboration with Ottawa University's Department of Communication

New novels in African literature today : a review by Ernest Emenyo̲nu( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This special issue of African Literature Today focuses on new novels by emerging as well as established African novelists. This is a seminal work that in various ways seeks to discuss the validity of the general notion that the new generation of African novelists is remarkably different in vision, style, and worldview from the older generation. The contention is that the older generation novelists who were too close to the colonial period in Africa had invariably made culture-conflict and little else their dominant thematic concern while the younger generation novelists are more versatile in their thematic preoccupations, and are more global in their vision and style. Do the facts in the novels justify and validate these claims?"--BOOK JACKET

Remembering a Legend: Chinua Achebe recaptures for the literary world the inimitable legacies of Chinua Achebe (1930-2013), Africa�s leading novelist and literary philosopher of the 20th century. It addresses the questions of Achebe�s role in establishing the African art of the novel, his theories and standards for the criticism of African writing. The volume articulates unequivocally how Achebe provided the message and pioneered a confident voice to African writers to express the message with audacity; repudiate without equivocation, any form of distortions of African past and present realiti
