Global Africa : Into the Twenty-First Century Paperback / softback

Edited by Dorothy Hodgson, Judith Byfield

Part of the Global Square series

Description

Global Africais a striking, original volume that disrupts the dominant narratives that continue to frame our discussion of Africa, complicating conventional views of the region as a place of violence, despair, and victimhood.

The volume documents the significant global connections, circulations, and contributions that African people, ideas, and goods have made throughout the world-from the United States and South Asia to Latin America, Europe, and elsewhere.

Through succinct and engaging pieces by scholars, policy makers, activists, and journalists, the volume provides a wholly original view of a continent at the center of global historical processes rather than on the periphery.

Global Africa offers fresh, complex, and insightful visions of a continent in flux.
