9780852552360: Readings in African Popular Culture
Review:

'Despite the overwhelming reality of economic decline; despite unimaginable poverty; despite wars, malnutrition, disease and political instability, African cultural productivity grows apace: popular literatures, oral narrative and poetry, dance, drama, music and visual art all thrive.' - Kwame Anthony Appiah, In My Father's House '...likely to become the main source book for African culture studies during the next decade... the enormous value of Readings in African Popular Culture in bringing together such a heterogeneous selection of nuanced, well-researched, thought-provoking articles from the emerging field of African Cultural Studies.' - David Kerr in African Theatre '... a critical testament of African popular culture. I strongly recommend it to readers and libraries.' - Tanure Ojaide in African Studies Review '... extraordinarily rich collection full of informative detail and excellent interpretative analysis. There is not a single piece that fails to fascinate; my own favourites include Olatunde Bayo Lawuyi on 'The World of the Yoruba Taxi Driver', Achille Mbembe on Cameroonian cartoons, and Alec J.C. Pongweni on 'The Chimurenga Songs of the Zimbabwean War of Revolution'. Broader contextualising essays include Barber's own scholarly Introduction and Johannes Fabian's 1978 essay 'Popular Culture in Africa'. The volume both reprints pieces that have previously been published (mainly in journals) and offers pieces specially commissioned for this publication. The bibliographical information brought together is worth the price of the volume alone.' - Martin Banham, Emeritus Professor of Drama and Theatre Studies in the University of Leeds, in Leeds African Studies Bulletin '... (one of) a rich diet of delicious scholarship on contemporary African culture...' - Graham Furniss, Reader in Hausa Cultural Studies and former Director of the Centre of African Studies, School of Oriental and African Studies, in African Affairs 'Readings in African Popular Culture is an important and welcome contribution to a field where standard textbooks are hard to find... Much in the volume points to the fact that although popular culture studies may still be in its formative stage as a field, it has already over the years, generated work of great insight and mature scholarship. Readings in African Popular Culture is an impressive collection of inspiring and thought-provoking essays.' - Francis B. Nyamnjoh in Media Development
