African Anthropologies : History, Critique and Practice, Paperback / softback Book

African Anthropologies : History, Critique and Practice Paperback / softback

Edited by Mwenda Ntarangwi, David Mills, Mustafa Babiker Ahmed

Part of the Africa in the New Millennium series


This overview of the history, application and teaching of anthropology in post-colonial Africa shows how the continent's anthropologists are redefining the historical legacy of European and American disciplinary hegemony, and developing distinctively African contributions to anthropological theory and practice.

The contributors illustrate the diverse national traditions of anthropological practice that have developed in sub-Saharan Africa since decolonisation and exemplify the diversity of professional work carried out by the discipline's practitioners.

Their commitment to a common disciplinary identity demonstrates the place that exists for a critical anthropology that is reflective about both its potentials and limitations.
