This book demonstrates that copper-alloy casting was widespread in southern Nigeria and has been practiced for at least a millennium. Philip M. Peek’s research provides a critical context for the better-known casting traditions of Igbo-Ukwu, Ife, and Benin. Both the necessary ores and casting skills were widely available, contrary to previous scholarly assumptions. The majority of the Lower Niger Bronzes, which we know number in the thousands, are of subjects not found elsewhere, such as leopard skull replicas, grotesque bell heads, ritual objects, and humanoid figures. Important puzzle pieces are now in place to permit a more complete reconstruction of southern Nigerian history. The book will be of interest to scholars working in art history, African studies, African history, and anthropology.

This reference provides scholars with a current source for the names of specific African ethnic groups. The text is a comprehensive index of more than 2,500 names of ethnic groups taken from numerous sources including linguistic and ethnographic surveys of Africa, as well as from more than 100 major books and catalogues of African art. Its emphasis is on the art of sub-Saharan Africa, with the term art interpreted broadly to include ornamental design, architecture, textiles, and body adornment, in addition to the more traditional arts of masks and sculpture. Daniel Biebuyck introduces researchers to the wealth and variety of these groups and the proliferation of terms which have been applied to them over the centuries. In addition to compiling alternate names and orthographies for various countries, cultures, and political and ritual entities, the index provides AAT and LCSH preferred terms, cites references and further sources of information for each main entry, and serves as a bibliography to current literature on African art.
