Abstract:

"This two-volume collection is not even an ordinary encyclopaedia for the study of the continent. Rather, it establishes entirely new parameters for Africanist scholarship. Without a doubt, an offering to celebrate among Africans, Africanists, and anyone interested in answering the question: What is Africa's place in the world today?"--"These two volumes will be indispensable reading to anyone with an interest in African Studies and in the production of knowledge on Africa. Paul Tiyambe Zeleza has assembled an impressive international group of contributors who address a range of important topics including the disciplines and interdisciplinarity in African Studies, the histories and politics of African Studies in different national contexts outside and within the continent, and the role of the African diaspora in the globalization of knowledge on Africa. Both volumes are framed and contextualised by masterly introductions by the editor which in themselves will become required reading in our field."
