Global Africa: Into the Twenty-First Century

Front Cover
Dorothy Hodgson, Judith Ann-Marie Byfield
Univ of California Press, 2017 - Business & Economics - 397 pages
Global Africa is a striking, original volume that disrupts 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, South Asia, Latin America, Europe, and elsewhere. Through succinct and engaging pieces by scholars, policy makers, activists, and journalists, the essays provide a wholly original view of a continent at the center of global historical processes rather than on its periphery. Global Africa offers fresh, complex, and insightful visions of a continent in flux.
