Description

Thorough, lively and carefully researched, Into Africa explores the complex culture of contemporary Africa, providing valuable advice to anyone working in or visiting the region. First published 11 years ago, this new and expanded edition brings readers up to date with the changes in Sub-Saharan Africa, which continues its adaptation to Western ways while retaining its cultural traditions and diversity. Among the new topics covered are changes in politics and business practises, trade with the United States and Europe, how the mobile phone has changed communication in Africa, and the continuing threat of HIV/AIDS. 'An invaluable source for anyone wanting to experience Africa. The authors begin with a subject of unimaginable scope and somehow make it concise and comprehensible.a truly magnificent work for both scholar and novice.' Warren M. Robbins, Founding Director Emeritus, National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution
