"[Herbert] has constructed a model of power relationships structured upon gender and age, and derived from male transformative processes, and in so doing has written a notable, and most enjoyable, book." -- African History "Herbert examines with great care and thoroughness the relationships between gender and power and the rationales that give them social form.... [Her] analytical ability is outstanding." -- Patrick McNaughton "This book is a well-written and essential study of the place of belief in African material culture." -- International Journal of African Historical Studies Herbert relates the beliefs and practices associated with iron working in African cultures to other transformative activities -- chiefly investiture, hunting, and pottery making -- to propose a gender/age-based theory of power.

Covering the entire span of human history across the African continent, this book begins in the Garden of Eden in the highland interior of East Africa and ends with the disintegration of apartheid. In the first chapter the author introduces us to our earliest tool-making ancestor (known affectionately as "dear boy"), in the last the author ponders the changes we are likely to see as the political elites of Africa begin to review the operation of their single-party systems. The human colonization of the continent - the origins of food production, the formation and diffusion of African languages, the achievements of Ancient Egypt, the impact of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, slavery, the caravan trade, exploration and colonization, the economic, political and social developments which gave rise to the modern nation states - this book looks at all these aspects in an overview of the history of Africa.

Published by CUSTOM BOOK PUBLICATIONS Classic Imprint RED GOLD Guy Lucan is assigned to investigate rail freight business on the original Cecil Rhodes 'Cape to Cairo' railway. Copper is the bedrock of the cargo running over the three thousand kilometre corridor to Indian Ocean ports for export. Smuggling the Red Gold out of the interior and evading government taxes has been a petty criminal activity for years but when an organised Chinese crime syndicate systematically moves tonnes illegally, murder and kidnap is added to their crimes. Beguiling twin sisters divert Guy Lucan's attention and he becomes the target of the Hong Kong triad who plan his execution. He only escapes from the 'Heart of Darkness' by an unlikely combination of chance circumstances. Guy Lucan's role as railway investigator again becomes a mix of Sherlock Holmes and James Bond as he follows the Red Gold trail!
Not only had numerous flags of newly independent African states utilised red, gold and green in a variety of compositions, (primarily as horizontal or ...

World is Africa brings together more than 30 important texts by Eddie Chambers, who for several decades has been an original and a critical voice within the field of African diaspora art history. The texts range from book chapters and catalogue essays, to shorter texts. Chambers focuses on contemporary artists and their practices, from a range of international locations, who for the most part are identified with the African diaspora. None of the texts are available online and none have been available outside of the original publication in which they first appeared. The volume contains several new pieces of writing, including a consideration of the art world 'fetishization' of the 1980s, as the manifestation of a reluctance to accept the majority of Black British artists as valid individual practitioners, choosing instead to shackle them to exhibitions that took place three decades ago. Another new text re-examines the 'map paintings' of Frank Bowling, the Guyana-born artist who was the subject of a major retrospective at Tate Britain in 2019. The third introduces the little-known record sleeve illustrations of Charles White, the American artist who was the subject of a major retrospective in 2018 at major galleries across the US. Among the other new texts is a critical reflection on the patronage the Greater London Council extended to Black artists in 1980s London. World is Africa makes a valuable contribution to the emerging discipline of black British art history, the field of African diaspora studies and African diaspora art history.

Auch in einer Welt der Zirkulation, in der dieselben Dinge und Ideen bis in die letzten Winkel vordringen, gleichen sich die Lebensverhaltnisse nicht notwendig einander an. DEnn an den konkreten Orten, an die sie gelangen, werden diese Dinge und Ideen umgearbeitet und neu erfunden, in kreativen Prozessen, den jeweils bestehenden Vorstellungen und Wunschen gemaSS. Kurt Beck hat wesentlich dazu beigetragen, dass diese Einsicht in das Wesen globaler Vernetzung zum ethnologischen Stand der Dinge wurde. MIt Hilfe dreier fur sein wissenschaftliches Arbeiten zentraler Zugange - Korper, Technik, Wissen untersucht der vorliegende Band die kreative Gestaltung einer sich immer im Wandel befindlichen Welt, zumeist am Beispiel Afrikas.
