Re-thinking sexualities in Africa ( Book )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 456 libraries worldwide
"This volume sets out to investigate critically existing lines of thought about sexuality in Africa, while also creating space for alternative approaches. Issues of colonial and contemporary discourses on 'African sexuality' and on 'female genital mutilation' are discussed, as are issues of female agency and of feminist engagement with HIV/AIDS. The volume contributes to current efforts to re-think sexualities in the light of feminist, queer and postcolonial theory."--BOOK JACKET
Women and the remaking of politics in Southern Africa : negotiating autonomy, incorporation, and representation by Gisela G Geisler( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 410 libraries worldwide
This book traces the history of women's political involvement in Southern Africa, in anti-colonial struggles and against apartheid, analyzes the post-colonial outcomes and examines the strategies that have been employed by women's movements to gain a foothold in politics. It looks in detail at the experiences of women both in and with the women's wings of political parties through the early years of independence up to today, discusses the successes and failures of national machinery for the advancement of women and analyses the activities of women's movements over time. Extensive material from Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa is compared and juxtaposed, as women politicians and women's movements learned from each others' experiences over time. The study also critically addresses the uneasy relationship between the women's movements and the state, and between women activists and women politicians as they have negotiated cooptation, integration and exclusion. Based on an extensive literature review and innumerable interviews with women politicians and activists as well as fieldwork, and spanning half a century and half a continent, the historical depth and geographical spread of the study put it in a class of its own. - Publisher
African conflicts and informal power big men and networks ( file )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 408 libraries worldwide
"In the aftermath of an armed conflict in Africa, the international community both produces and demands from local partners a variety of blueprints for reconstructing state and society. The aim is to re-formalize the state after what is viewed as a period of fragmentation. In reality, African economies and polities are very much informal in character, with informal actors, including so-called Big Men, often using their positions in the formal structure as a means to reach their own goals. Through a variety of in-depth case studies, including the DRC, Sierra Leone and Liberia, African Conflicts and Informal Power shows how important informal political and economic networks are in many of the continent's conflict areas. Moreover, it demonstrates that without a proper understanding of the impact of these networks, attempts to formalize African states, particularly those emerging from wars, will be in vain"--Provided by publisher
