The history of Africa : the quest for eternal harmony by Molefi Kete Asante( Book )
29 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 887 libraries worldwide
"There is a paradox about Africa: it remains a subject that attracts considerable attention yet rarely is there a full appreciation of its complexity. African historiography has typically consisted of writing Africa for Europe - instead of writing Africa for itself, as itself, from its own perspectives. The History of Africa redresses this by letting the perspectives of Africans themselves take center stage." "Authoritative and comprehensive, this book provides a wide-ranging history of Africa from earliest prehistory to the present day - using the cultural, social, political, and economic lenses of Africa as instruments to illuminate the ordinary lives of Africans. The result is a fresh new survey that includes a wealth of indigenous ideas, African concepts, and traditional outlooks that have escaped the writing of African history in the West."--Jacket
Encyclopedia of Black studies by Ama Mazama( Book )
14 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 739 libraries worldwide
"More than a chronicle of black culture or black people, this encyclopedia deals with the emergence and maturity of an intellectual field over the past four decades. Beginning with the protests at San Francisco State College in 1967 that led to the first degree-granting department of Black Studies, the field's rapid growth over time necessitates an authoritative account of the discipline. More than ever scholars and students need a clear conception of what the evolutionary processes have been in the creation and maintenance of the discipline." "The Encyclopedia of Black Studies is the leading reference source for dynamic and innovative research on the Black Experience. The concept for the encyclopedia was developed from the successful Journal of Black Studies (SAGE) and contains a full analysis of the economic, political, sociological, historical, literary, and philosophical issues related to Americans of African descent. This single-volume reference is the vanguard of the recent explosive growth in quality scholarship in the field."--BOOK JACKET

"Featuring thirty readings by imporant intercultural and international communication scholars, The Global Intercultural Communication Reader is edited by Molefi Kete Asante, one of the founders of the field of intercultural communication, along with international scholars Yoshitaka Miike and Jing Yin. The volume is ideal for undergraduate and graduate courses in intercultural communication, particularly those with an international focus."--Back cover
