  • Why Afropolitanism Matters
    • Abstract: We should be attentive to the variety of ways in which contemporary Africans, from all walks of life, act on and in the world, across multiple scales of place and through multiple modes of being.In this article, I do not intend to answer the questions "What is Afropolitanism'" and "Who are the Afropolitans'" Rather, my discussion will trace the variously convergent, sometimes celebratory, often critical literature on Afropolitanism as an analytic concept and mode of identification. Any definitive, singular statement concerning the nature and meaning of Afropolitanism is, as I will argue at the end of this essay, anathema to what the idea of the Afropolitan may contribute as a polysemous and (to borrow a phrase from ...

  • Africa and the United States: Assessing AGOA
    • Abstract: Some observers have praised AGOA as an important policy vehicle for enabling and sustaining reforms that could attract much-needed investment and trade, which, in turn, could help transform the African continent's business, economic, social, and political landscapes.On 18 May 2000, President Bill Clinton signed into law the AGOA agreement as Title 1 of the Trade and Development Act of 2000 (http://trade.gov/agoa/legislation). The act is designed to promote economic development in sub-Saharan Africa through privileged access of African goods into US markets and increased US investment flows into Africa. A core element of AGOA is to provide "tangible incentives for African countries to continue their efforts to open ... Read More

  • The Poor Paying for the Rich: The Politics of Inequality in the
           Water-Pricing Structure in Ghana, 2003–2013
    • Abstract: The water-pricing system is indicative of a governance model that exacerbates social inequality between rural and urban citizens, and its continuation demonstrates the inefficiency of the Ghanaian state as a provider of public services.In Ghana, rural citizens do not enjoy the same public services available to wealthier citizens. Article 35 (3) of the 1992 constitution instructs the Ghanaian state "to promote just and reasonable access by all citizens to public facilities and services" (Government of Ghana 1992). Such facilities and services include water resources; however, the current reality is quite different. The central state takes responsibility for the welfare of urban citizens while excluding rural ... Read More

  • Historical and Modern Artisanal Small-Scale Mining in Akyem Abuakwa, Ghana
    • Abstract: Proponents of the resource-curse hypothesis argue that African countries with significant natural wealth reap limited rewards and have experienced underdevelopment. Such is the case in Akyem Abuakwa, where the negative environmental effects of small-scale mining are becoming increasingly unmanageable.It is unknown when gold-mining activities commenced in Ghana, but it is certain that the local inhabitants were accustomed to winning gold before the arrival of Portuguese adventurers in 1471. At the time of the first European contact, indigenous peoples were engaged in alluvial gold mining (Hilson 2002c; Junner 1973). A wealth of evidence suggests that gold mining in Ghana may have dated several centuries back. ... Read More

  • Afro-Swedish Artistic Practices and Discourses in and out of Sweden: A
           Conversation with Ethnomusicologist Ryan T. Skinner
    • Abstract: Sweden has long been known for its tolerance and openness. During the twentieth century, Swedish missionaries paved the way for Africans to migrate to Sweden, Swedish political figures campaigned for decolonization, and by the 1970s, Sweden was attracting people fleeing war-torn areas such as the Horn of Africa (Kubai 2016; Kushkush 2016). Yet recently, Sweden has had to contend with a sharp increase in the numbers of immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers. Once a nation with one of the most progressive stances on migration, it reversed its immigration policy in 2015, in part responding to the unprecedented numbers of families migrating to Europe from Syria, West Africa, and elsewhere. Sweden began to control its ... Read More

  • The Atlantic Slave Trade from West Central Africa, 1780–1867 by Daniel
           B. Domingues da Silva (review)
    • Abstract: The Atlantic Slave Trade from West Central Africa, 1780–1867, a recent edition within the Cambridge Studies in the African Diaspora series, asserts that West Central African economic agency was essential to the continued supply of African bodies to the Atlantic slave trade after abolition of the trade by European powers. Daniel Domingues da Silva here applies the Voyages Database to critique previous scholars' emphasis on state formation as the central element in this trade. He confronts this emphasis by looking less at the rise of European capitalism and warfare among African empires as causes for the increased captive populations of the Second Slavery, and more at individual African traders' motives.Domingues da ...

  • Decolonizing Nigeria, 1945–1960: Politics, Power, and Personalities by
           Toyin Falola and Bola Dauda (review)
    • Abstract: This volume, by the distinguished scholars Toyin Falola and Bola Dauda, endeavors to explain "the melodrama of the 'arranged marriage' of 248 ethnic groups that make up today's Nigeria" (p. 2). In recounting this story, Decolonizing Nigeria, 1945–1960: Politics, Power, and Personalities focuses "on a great number of small events rather than a small number of great events" (p. 4). The authors use an abundance of primary and secondary source materials. The result is a comprehensive study, which achieves the authors' intention "to synthesize academic scholarship" and "popular history" (p. 21) in a book that experts and general readers alike will find enjoyable and highly informative.During the nineteenth century, the ...

  • Intimate Interventions in Global Health: Family Planning and HIV
           Prevention in Sub-Saharan Africa by Rachel Sullivan Robinson (review)
    • Abstract: Rachel Sullivan Robinson's Intimate Interventions in Global Health: Family Planning and HIV Prevention in Sub-Saharan Africa takes an interdisciplinary approach in discussing historical frameworks and the trajectories of health-programming outcomes on global and local levels.Rather than relying strictly on statistical data to make sweeping generalizations, Robinson relies on personal interviews with more than 150 participants from a variety of backgrounds to provide detailed, on-the-scene explanations of factors that influence programming, policy, and effectiveness in family planning and HIV prevention. She interviewed experts in global population, and for each case-study country, respondents who worked in NGOs ... Read More

  • A Socialist Peace' Explaining the Absence of War in an African Country
           by Mike McGovern (review)
    • Abstract: In A Socialist Peace' Explaining the Absence of War in an African Country, the anthropologist Mike McGovern elucidates why Guinea, unlike its neighbors, has not fallen into civil war. He convincingly argues that the explanation for the population's decision not to go to war lies in the country's socialist past. Sékou Touré, Guinea's first president (1958–1984), left a contradictory and highly contested legacy, but he successfully inculcated a sense of national identity in the country's citizens. In times of acute threat, as during the cross-border attacks of 2000 and 2001, well after Touré's reign, habitual practices learned during the socialist period reemerged.McGovern's ambition is to speak about the whole ...

  • Religion, Tradition, and Restorative Justice in Sierra Leone by Lyn
           Graybill (review)
    • Abstract: In Religion, Tradition, and Restorative Justice in Sierra Leone, Lyn Graybill delivers another detailed study of the restorative justice process. Her study of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) was published in 2002, and in 2017, she follows up with a work that focuses on the aftermath of the civil war in Sierra Leone. This book offers more than its title suggests, beginning with a brief history of the war, the role of the Inter-Religious Council, and the creation of Sierra Leone's TRC; other elements place her work firmly in the peace-building, African studies, and religious studies literatures.Graybill lays bare an overarching dissimilarity between the West and the rest of the world as seen ...

  • Nation As Grand Narrative: the Nigerian press and the Politics of Meaning
           by Wale Adebanwi (review)
    • Abstract: In varied ways, Wale Adebanwi's book, Nation as Grand Narrative: The Nigerian Press and the Politics of Meaning, provides information on a meaningful analysis of domination and subordination as perceived in media narratives. It "argues that in the practical amalgamation of the two protectorates [in Nigeria] and the symbolic 'invention' of Nigeria, including the contention over these events, the narratives in the press are not tangential but critical" (p. 5).The book is divided into four parts: "Contextual and Conceptual Perspectives"; "Colonial Agency and Counterhegemonies"; "Inclusion, Exclusion, and Democratic Contestations"; and "Domination and Resistance in Majority–Minority Relations." It provides a useful ... Read More
