Book Description :

In 1914 Karen Blixen arrived in Kenya with her husband to run a coffee-farm. Instantly drawn to the land, she spent her happiest years there until the plantation failed. Karen Blixen was forced to return to Denmark in 1931 and it was there that she wrote this classic account of her experiences. A poignant farewell to her beloved farm, Out of Africa describes her strong friendships with the people of the area, her affection for the landscape and animals, and great love for the adventurer Denys Finch-Hatton. Written with astonishing clarity and an unsentimental intelligence, Out of Africa portrays a way of life that has disappeared for ever.

Book Description :

Four school teachers and their girlfriends, dissatisfied and disoriented with their lot in life and more particularly, the teaching profession as a result of low salaries, lack of benefits, run-away inflation and shortages of essential commodities due to mismanagement of their country's economy, prepare to enter the national university to acquire higher qualifications to help them get better jobs and income after graduation. They work assiduously, combining studies, full-time employment and gallivanting to savour the good life the Harbour City could offer. At the time, their country was under a second military government in less than fifteen years after regaining freedom and independence from the British. Their entry into Elgin University is marked by over-excitement, boos and womanizing alongside intense academic activities. The excitement and ebullience spill over beyond the borders of the University campus, enticing the police and army, who are battle-hungry and deprived of physical training, to engage in intermittent invasion of the university campus under the pretext of flushing out malcontents and hooligans. For more than a decade, the campus becomes battle grounds for police and army invasions, brutalities, anti-government demonstrations, student politics and government intervention and interference in the academic life of the university. To make sense and meaning of what was going on at the campus, the four students, their girl-friends and sympathizers team up to organize a personal club to support themselves in coping with the stresses and uncertainties of campus life amidst the ongoing cacophonic revolution. They align themselves with a relative and friend, Jonas, who lives in the third largest city of the Republic. Jonas agrees to be a proud sponsor and financier of the group, who refer to themselves as social climbers. Jonas pays a visit to the Elgin campus to participate in the group's first campus party. He meets with Joe and Osborn, two close friends, and introduces them to some six mysterious soldiers he was working with on some special project, as he intimated. After the party, Jonas leaves for his city but mysteriously fails to reach his destination. Nothing is heard of him for months. Around the same time, other people mysteriously disappear in the Republic. Under intense suspicions, General Ito, Chairman of the Revolutionary Military Council, announces at a press conference that certain individuals have been apprehended and put in military custody for engaging in illegal activities calculated to undermine his government. He assures the nation, however, that investigations are underway and that those people would soon be brought to justice. Meanwhile, student demonstrations against the military government continue unabated because of the government's failure to meet their demands, one of which is to hand over power. Planning to entrench themselves in power, the military government organizes a national referendum seeking approval for a proposed tripartite union government involving the army, civilians and the police. Joe and the group win the student union elections and he is sworn in as President of the Elgin University student union. Using their new political leverage, Joe and Osborn confront General Ito and his military strategists about the whereabouts of Jonas. They are arrested and placed under military custody for interrogations at the Castle dungeons. Demands for their release reach searing point at the campus, resulting in massive nation-wide student demonstrations. In the ensuing confusion and anarchy, some disgruntled non-commissioned officers in the army overthrow the military government, freeing all those in military custody, including Jonas. A new civilian government is hastily organized and installed with Jonas as the new President. Joe and Osborn refuse to participate in the new government and, instead, negotiate for safe exit to con

Book Description :

From the moment Karen Blixen arrived in Kenya in 1914 to manage a coffee plantation, her heart belonged to Africa. Drawn to the intense colours and ravishing landscapes, Karen Blixen spent her happiest years on the farm and her experiences and friendships with the people around her are vividly recalled in these memoirs. She describes her strong friendships with the people of the area, her affection for the landscape and animals, and great love for the adventurer Denys Finch-Hatton. Written with astonishing clarity and an unsentimental intelligence, Out of Africa is the story of a remarkable and unconventional woman and of a way of life that has vanished for ever.

Book Description :

The kind of extraordinary domed house constructed by Chad and Cameroon’s Mousgoum peoples has long held sway over the Western imagination. In fact, as Steven Nelson shows here, this prototypical beehive-shaped structure known as the teleukhas been cast as everything from a sign of authenticity to a tourist destination to a perfect fusion of form and function in an unselfconscious culture. And in this multifaceted history of the teleuk, thought of by the Mousgoum themselves as a three-dimensional symbol of their culture, Nelson charts how a singular building’s meaning has the capacity to change over time and in different places. Drawing on fieldwork in Cameroon and Japan as well as archival research in Africa, the United States, and Europe, Nelson explores how the teleuk has been understood by groups ranging from contemporary tourists to the Cameroonian government and—most importantly—today’s Mousgoum people. In doing so, he moves in and out of Africa to provide a window into a changing Mousgoum culture and to show how both African and Western peoples use the built environment to advance their own needs and desires. Highlighting the global impact of African architecture, From Cameroon to Paris will appeal to scholars and students of African art history and architectural history, as well as those interested in Western interactions with Africa.

Book Description :

Kurt Vonnegut once wrote that strange travel plans are dancing lessons from God. If that be true, God found some great entertainment in Shannon Mallory, who for 18 years had the strangest travels throughout Africa. These memoirs are the story of those travels, the story of a young man and his family dodging some circumstances beyond belief: being forced out of Namibia when it was under South African occupation; getting black-listed and kicked out of South Africa for courting the "underdog" during the years of apartheid; living in the midst of Idi Amin's bloody regime in Uganda; and experiencing close brushes with death on many an occasion. Mallory's account of his years in Africa is colorful and descriptive. He takes the reader on a journey not only of his own but of Africa itself: its history, its people, its spirituality, and its pleasant and unpleasant political past. Shannon writes freely as an insider about the church's influence on that great continent - much of it negative - and how it has affected not only religious but social and political life there as well, and he calls on the church for accountability for its actions. This book is compelling, informative, enthralling, and raw, a must-read for lovers of Africa, lovers of travel, lovers of political and social justice, and lovers of a good story well told.

Book Description :

Africa is forever on our TV screens, but the bad-news stories (famine, genocide, corruption) massively outweigh the good (South Africa). Ever since the process of de-colonialisation began in the mid-1950s, and arguably before, the continent has appeared to be stuck in a process of irreversible decline. Constant war, improper use of natural resources and misappropriation of revenues and aid monies contribute to an impression of a continent beyond hope. How did we get here? What, if anything, is to be done? Fully revised and updated and weaving together the key stories and characters of the last sixty years into a stunningly compelling and coherent narrative, Martin Meredith has produced the definitive history of how European ideas of how to organise 10,000 different ethnic groups has led to what Tony Blair described as the 'scar on the conscience of the world'. Authoritative, provocative and consistently fascinating, this is the updated edition of the seminal book on one of the most important issues facing the West today.
