Reviews

"This book serves as an invaluable resource for geographers, historians, and all social scientists, as well as any members of the public interested in learning more about this complicated and fascinating continent."--Polymath
"In the collection of essays Global Africa Into the Twenty-First Century, editors Dorothy Hodgson and Judith Byfield tackle the challenge V.Y. Mudimbe identified as 'the idea of Africa.' Their aim is to push readers to think deeply about and grapple with the dynamic nature of Africa as a geographic space, situating Africa at the center of global processes by demonstrating the pivotal roles Africans have played in producing and circulating ideas and initiating 'transformations throughout the world'."-- (09/01/2018)
"Challenging popular perceptions of Africa as a place of despair and violence, this volume describes the contributions that African people, ideas and goods have made throughout the world - contributions which, according to the editors, demonstrate that Africa occupies a central position in global historical processes."--Survival: Global Politics and Strategy
