    Michigan State University Press 2016; US$ 31.95

    African and notably sub-Saharan African film?s relative eclipse on the international scene in the early twenty-first century does not transcend the growth within the African genre.

    Palgrave Macmillan US 2011; US$ 84.86

    Palgrave Macmillan US 2009; US$ 82.90

  • Scars of Conquest/Masks of Resistanceby Tejumola Olaniyan

    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 50.00
