    I.B.Tauris 2015; US$ 19.99

    Siwa is a remote oasis deep in the heart of the Egyptian desert near the border with Libya.

    This fascinating and well researched study explores the meaning generated by `Africa' and `Blackness' throughout the century.

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 53.56

    The extensive literature relating to the African diaspora has tended to concentrate on the descendants of those who left Africa as part of the slave trade to North America.

    ABC-CLIO 2008; US$ 306.00

    The field of African Diaspora studies is rapidly growing. Until now there was no single, authoritative source for information on this broad, complex discipline.
