A propos du livre :

Synopsis :

The Encyclopedia of Africa presents the most up-to-date and thorough reference on this region of ever-growing importance in world history, politics, and culture. Its core is comprised of the entries focusing on African history and culture from 2005's acclaimed five-volume Africana - nearly two-thirds of these 1,300 entries have been updated, revised, and expanded to reflect the most recent scholarship. Organized in an A-Z format, the articles cover prominent individuals, events, trends, places, political movements, art forms, business and trade, religions, ethnic groups, organizations, and countries throughout Africa. There are articles on contemporary nations of sub-Saharan Africa, ethnic groups from various regions of Africa, and European colonial powers. Other examples include Congo River, Ivory trade, Mau Mau rebellion, and Pastoralism. The Encyclopedia of Africa is sure to become the essential resource in the field.

Henry Louis Gates, Jr. earned his MA and PhD in English Literature from Clare College at the University of Cambridge, and his B.A. summa cum laude in English literature from Yale University. Before coming to Harvard (where he served as Chair of the African American Studies Department from 1991 to 2006), he taught at Yale, Cornell, and Duke. His grants and honors include a MacArthur Foundation "genius grant," the George Polk Award for Social Commentary, Time Magazine's "25 Most Influential Americans" list, a National Humanities Medal, election to the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Jefferson Lecture, a Visiting Fellowship at the School of Social Science at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, and 44 honorary degrees. Dr. Gates is the author of several works of literary criticism and is the Editor in Chief of the Oxford African American Studies Center, Series Editor of the Collected Black Writers series and of the Oxford W.
