    NEW! H-AFRICA REVIEWS: a service of excellence

    H-Africa reviews scholarly books efficiently and competently. Our reviews, of great value to scholars, increasingly are read more widely than other review forums. H-Africa reviews are edited by Dr. Brett Shadle (Virginia Tech; email: shadle@vt.edu) and Dr. Esperanza Brizuela-Garcia (Montclair State University; email: brizuelagare@mail.montclair.edu). Visit also our reviews page that includes not only H-AFRICA reviews but also reviews (book, film and web) posted between 1995-2007 from all other H-Net African Studies networks. For more recent reviews see 2007-2013.

    Latest Africa Forum: Catherine Coquery-Vidrovitch African Studies in France; in French

    Web Editor's Note: In many cases, the links to "Notable Threads" that follow lead to the months and years associated with the underlined threaded subjects. If that occurs, all subjects of postings of that month and year will appear alphabetically. To access your subject, you must scroll down to the first letter of your subject to view its postings. For example, to access the June 2006 postings of "Islam in Africa," once all subjects of postings for June 2006 appear alphabetically, you must scroll down to "I" to locate "Islam and Africa." H-Net upgrades over time broke many of the direct links once found here.
