Abstract:

"Emergent Themes and Methods in African Studies honors one of Nigeria's pre-eminent historians, Adiele Afigbo, who has made numerous contributions to African history, Archeology, and African Studies over the course of the last forty years. The book reflects on Afigbo's career and contributions while offering chapters on a variety of historical and contemporary issues in Africa. Leading researchers in a wide range of disciplines contributed to the work with chapters ranging from religion, philosophy, economics, human rights, and women's studies among many other subjects. The volume is as diverse in subject matter as the contributions of Adiele Afigbo to the discipline of African history."--Publisher's website.
