In recent years, scholarly interest in love has flourished. Historians have addressed the rise of romantic love and marriage in Europe and the United States, while anthropologists have explored the ways globalization has reshaped local ideas about those same topics. Yet, love in Africa has been peculiarly ignored, resulting in a serious lack of understanding about this vital element of social life—a glaring omission given the intense focus on sexuality in Africa in the wake of HIV/AIDS. Love in Africa seeks both to understand this failure to consider love and to begin to correct it. In a substantive introduction and eight essays that examine a variety of countries and range in time from the 1930s to the present, the contributors collectively argue for the importance of paying attention to the many different cultural and historical strands that constitute love in Africa. Covering such diverse topics as the reception of Bollywood movies in 1950s Zanzibar, the effects of a Mexican telenovela on young people’s ideas about courtship in Niger, the models of romance promoted by South African and Kenyan magazines, and the complex relationship between love and money in Madagascar and South Africa, Love in Africa is a vivid and compelling look at love’s role in African society.

From Jeffrey Gettleman, a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist, comes a passionate, revealing story about finding love and finding a calling, set against one of the most turbulent regions in the world. A seasoned war correspondent, Jeffrey Gettleman has covered every major conflict over the past twenty years, from Afghanistan to Iraq to the Congo. For the past decade, he has served as the East Africa bureau chief for the New York Times, fulfilling a teenage dream. At nineteen, Gettleman fell in love, twice. On a do-it-yourself community service trip in college, he went to East Africa—a terrifying, exciting, dreamlike part of the world in the throes of change that imprinted itself on his imagination and on his heart. But around that same time he also fell in love with a fellow Cornell student—the brightest, classiest, most principled woman he’d ever met. To say they were opposites was an understatement. She became a criminal lawyer in America; he hungered to return to Africa. For the next decade he would be torn between these two abiding passions. A sensually rendered coming-of-age story in the tradition of Barbarian Days, Love, Africa is a tale of passion, violence, far-flung adventure, tortuous long-distance relationships, screwing up, forgiveness, parenthood, and happiness that explores the power of finding yourself in the most unexpected of places.

This book gives one of the most comprehensive and unique accounts of prejudice and racial discrimination in the united states of America in the early nineteen sixties to the present time. Sydney, who later became an American citizen, lived in the united states for fifty years. However, as an African student in the United States, he observed and experienced prejudice and discrimination. The account of racial unrest in the United States is given in this book without emotions or bitterness, but endeavors to be realistic about the problem of racism. The book deals with root causes of racism, prejudice and racial discrimination in the United States, and provides some useful suggestions about solutions. The book is very readable and engaging, with true stories of romance and love. Venerable Dr. Sydney Ugwunna is now a friend of at least two of the presidents of the United States, presidents Clinton and Obama, and a close friend and admirer of the beloved queen of England, her majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. The venerable (Prof.) Sydney C. Ugwunna is a prominent, retired, grateful priest of the Church of England.

This 1973 text was the first detailed study of that phenomenon of the African literary scene, Onitsha market literature. Pen names and pamphlet titles adopted by Onitsha authors have often been the subject of amused comment, but it took a long time for Onitsha writing to be recognised for what it is: a genuinely popular literature, unique on Africa, written in English by Africans for an exclusively African audience. What are the origins of this literature? Why did it start in Onitsha? Why do certain themes recur? Where have the writer acquired their unconventional attitudes to love, marriage, sex? What influences have shaped the robust and unorthodox language they use? Dr Obiechina answers these questions and asks what we can learn from the Onitsha authors about social change in Nigeria - how do they attempt to reconcile the traditional rural community and the aggressive individualistic urban society with alien values?

China And Africa Love Affair

China and Africa is a current hot topic. The Love Affair is a strong enthusiasm which has seen an interest and eagerness by the Chinese to engage in Africa. Chinese engagement in Africa has raised various concerns. Although these concerns are real, it seems much of the debate does not take into adequate (sometimes no) account of the historical relations between Africa and China. Indeed one would be forgiven to think that China and Africa started their relations in the 1990s. But this is not the case. Already back in 1957, for example, the Chinese were making large cotton purchases from Egypt. China and Africa Love Affair is a short historical account of the relationship between China and Africa. The objectives of the book are to provide an historical context through which the current debate can take place. Most of the criticism leveled against both China and Africa does not take account of the history between the two. It should do. Its worrying that some criticism of Sino-African relations emanates from non Africans. Even more worrying is that these same sources are doing brisk business with China. It's important that Africans know their own history. It is equally important that we know the history of those that we have a relationship with. Understanding the history of Sino-African relationships is critical to what Africans can gain from this relationship. It is also critical to how Africans respond to the Chinese. Sino-African relations are evolving. Failure to understand the historical context in which this relationship has developed, will lead to misunderstanding and perhaps even conflict, which would be detrimental to both parties.

Don Pinnock, a well-known travel writer, has drawn on his passion for Africa and his experience as a journalist for Getaway magazine to write yet another entertaining and engrossing book of short essays on natural history, full of humor, interest and speculation. Each of his essays reveals something of natures many quirks and offers startlingly large questions from little things that ordinary folk pass over with hardly a glance. The pieces are short and easily digestible, with a bit of philosophy and an interest in the human story. And include ruminations on the following questions: · Are clouds alive? · Where is Africa's most dangerous river? · Why do female hyenas sometimes grow a penis? · Why did Zulu warriors never ride into battle mounted on zebras?

Kathy was born in Rhodesia in 1953. She has an enduring affection for Zimbabwe- the freedom, the space, the friendly people and the beautiful weather. Although she has been through incredibly tough times, she writes about the tragedies she has faced with openness and great feeling, her faith helping enormously in overcoming them. With a sense of humour and a deep-rooted love of Africa, Kathy tells her story vividly, portraying the excitement and adventure experienced by her family as settlers in the early days of Rhodesia. The unbelievable hardships they suffered, their amazing perseverance in the face of adversity, and their tough pioneering spirit live on in Kathy to this day. But as well as recounting the misfortunes, Kathy writes about happier times- her family's adventures on the islands off the East African coast; the solitude that can only be experienced in the African bush; the camping safaris at Kariba, despite the ever-present risk of encountering hippo, crocodiles and other wildlife. Kathy now lives a full and contented life in Harare, giving talks and counselling those who have lost loved ones. But most of all she keeps her sense of humour, her love of life, friends and family, and she enjoys all the many good things about living in Zimbabwe.

After having been stunned by untold evils making the order of each day in Africa, and particularly in his country, Alfani was compelled to address this in the form of a book. The ideas he suggests to alleviate the situation is what he regards as alternative strategies to develop a crumbling continent. Alfani believes that development should be given priority. He laments that most of the continent's resources are misused by a handful of citizens and dumped in the most worthless personal luxuries and expenditures such as civil and religious wars. About HIV/AIDS in Africa, he simply but firmly says that no matter how complicated the disease can be, the chance is that it can be reversed if there'll be a systematic paradigm shift in people's minds. From the experience of land reform in Zimbabwe as well as severe hunger caused by extremely low rate of food production in many African states, he scoffs the continent's inability to invest in the land. He also blames contemporary African leaders for their reluctance to embrace the breeze of development, and accuses politicians of treating ordinary citizens cheaply. In this book, he offers a simple definition of the word "development" when he equates it to a walk from where people have been getting delayed to where they would like to be. For Africa, this means joining other continents or even taking an extra mile. On the other hand, he warns his readers not to take his book as a compilation of some absolute "do's" but to consider it as a guide or help. The implementation of his suggestions is absolutely a personal issue. Alfani's book is not only engaging but also informative.
