    Reviews & endorsements

    "There is much to be celebrated in Banham's collection. The decision to cull essays primarily from African scholars hailing from the regions discussed begets richer engagement with scholarship from the continent, and it is buoying to see masters and dissertation theses from African universities peppering the works cited throughout." Luso-Brazilian Review Christina McMahon, Northwestern University
