Although courses on Africa have been part of the undergraduate curriculum in American colleges and universities for more than three decades, it is surprising how few materials have been written specifically for undergraduates. The resources included in this essay were written for undergraduates or are relatively accessible to them. The focus is on resources in English published or reissued since 1980, which cover the whole continent or sub-Saharan Africa, rather than individual countries. It is beyond the scope of this essay to provide resources specific to Africa's more than fifty nation-states. However, resources on South Africa have been included, since a chapter on South Africa is included in this volume. [p. 414] This essay is addressed to undergraduate students, librarians who select materials for undergraduate collections, and faculty who teach undergraduate courses. Accurate, up-to-date materials which could form a core collection for undergraduate libraries have been selected for inclusion in the essay. Sections on audiovisual and computer resources have been included, since they are as essential to curricula on Africa in the 1990s as are print resources.

Extractions: The paper takes an idiographic view of Ethnicity. It notes that from the onset, ethnicity was never a negative term; for it denotes an extreme consciousness of and loyalty to a particular linguistic and cultural group unidentified with any other group. It was during the process of nation-building that ethnicity assumed its negative connotation. Using Liberia, Somalia, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo and Lesotho as examples, the paper argues that ethnic sentiments have done a lot of harm to Africa as a continent. The paper noted that since this sentiment is normally displayed in cities as different ethnic groups meet to work; the city should also be the initial place to diffuse ethnic ethical values. The paper tensions through formal education and imbibing of progressive further argues that as these remedies are being implemented social network culture will automatically be progressive in all its ramifications. Ethnicity denotes an extreme consciousness of and loyalty to a particular linguistic and cultural group unidentified with any other group (Udoh 1998:38). Such groups usually possess myth of origin, traceable to an epical ancestor or ancestress. With a strong ruling house such ethnic groups like the Yoruba, Edo, Fante were able to organize themselves into Empire or Kingdoms, conquering and incorporating other lesser ethnic groups as vassals. With the coming of colonial masters, treaties were signed with such kingdoms wherever they existed; especially during the 17th and 18th centuries (Bradbury et al 1965; Igbafe 1972).

History B African Languages The number of distinctive languages spoken in Africa is open to debate. Some experts put the number at around 2,000, while others count more than 3,000. Virtually all of these languages originated in Africa. The most widely spoken indigenous African language is Swahili, spoken by nearly 50 million Africans, followed by Hausa and Yoruba, each with more than 20 million speakers. Several languages have only a few thousand speakers. Scholars generally recognize four African language families: Niger-Congo, Afro-Asiatic, Nilo-Saharan, and Khoisan.

Extractions: Library Catalog African Ethnicities Please note that I have a separate page available on African languages A number of Web pages have been produced by members of indigenous minority and majority ethnic groups world-wide. Rather than primarily serving as academic, encyclopedic, or anthropological resources, they are often self-promotional, but several provide excellent information and rigorous documentation. This is a small collection of such pages produced primarily by Africans, along with some material produced by others. Most often, these African ethnic group home pages are a direct expression of individual members of the group, but in several cases represent an academic, official, or institutional point of view. If you are looking for an "objective" presentation, these links may not be the best sources for your work. Nevertheless, most have very good cultural, historical, and other background information, and many provide links to related sites that you may also find useful.

[Natural Seeds] There have recently been several books written on the theme of the human diet in evolution. All attempts to figure out what we 'ought' to eat based on the lifeway and foods available to our ancestors come up against several difficulties. One is that we there are virtually no 'wild living' human animals left on earth. Another is that of those that are left, most are in harsh living conditions that are not typical of our original lifeway. These groups have been pushed to these marginal environments by invading agricultural and pastoral peoples, primarily urban industrial Westerners, and pastoralist. The diseases we introduced all but wiped out the wild living humans, as they had no natural resistance. Very little authentic knowledge exists of which plants and animals and animals are edible, how to gather/catch/prepare them. What we can say is that people living in wooded Africa, and in subtropical and tropical forests of Asia and Southeast Asia do give us some insights into the 'natural' food of humankind.

Extractions: AFRICAN LUCY compiled by Dee Finney 2-20-04 - DREAM - IT'S STARTING - I was in Wisconsin, near Eau Claire. I went to visit my mother-in-law Lucy B. at her farmhouse. We were having a nice chat and then she told me that five of her sons had spun themselves to death to commit suicide the week before. There were no funerals for them because it was a sin to commit suicide. I thought that was atrocious. I went out for a walk and when I came back, the house was full of people who were all standing around crying. I was really puzzled, so I started asking people why everyone was crying. Nobody would tell me and that was making me angry. Finally I saw a priest standing in the midst of the crowd and he had tears in his eyes too. I said "Why is everyone standing around like somebody died? He didn't answer either, but more or less looked towards the other room. So I looked into the other room and there was my mother-in-law laying on her back with her eyes closed on top of the dining room table. People were sitting and standing around her seemingly dead body.

Extractions: by Raphael Ganda The country of Zimbabwe is situated in central Southern Africa. It is a landlocked country with Zambia in the north, Mozambique in the east, South Africa in the south and Botswana in the west. Before independence in 1980, the country used to be known as Rhodesia. It is a multiracial community of about 12 million people, with the Shona and the Nelebele being the two major ethnic groups. It is a Christian country with predominance by the Roman Catholic and the Anglican churches. The spiritual jurisdiction of the Holy Orthodox Archbishopric of Zimbabwe includes the faithful of Malawi, Mozambique, Botswana, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. The headquarters is in Harare, and the Metropolitan is His Eminence Makarios, who was enthroned earlier this year. The realities of the Orthodox Church in Zimbabwe are typical of the situation in the whole of Southern Africa. Orthodoxy was brought primarily by the Greeks and Cypriots of the Diaspora. We have a very strong Greek community and those who are here now are of the third generation. Thus, it was inevitable that the early clergy who came here were to serve the liturgical and the spiritual needs of the Greek community, a community which is very well organized, strongly spiritual and active. We have catechetical classes, Sunday School classes, Syndesmos of the Orthodox youth, associations for young couples, for the elderly, group meetings for the youth, works of charity, libraries for Orthodox books or videos, to name but just a few.

Mshomba Average review score: The African economic situation explained Richard Mshomba's "Africa in the Global Economy" presents an excellent analysis of both the situation and causation of economic conditions in Sub-Saharan Africa. The economic policies of African countries in combination with the trade policies of developed countries have both contributed to the lack of real economic growth. My summary of the book would be this - African countries have continued to shoot themselves in the foot while developed countries, like the U.S., have held the gun. For anyone with any interest in international economics, this is truly a great read. A great book about sub-Saharan Africa. Read it! Mshomba's "Africa in the Global Economy" is by far the best book I have ever read in international economics. The author writes clearly and objectively in evaluating sub-Saharan trade policies.

Kenya I Tanzania East and Central Africa The Region and Its History Islam was an integral part of the East African coastal culture by as early as 1000 CE. Islam arrived on the coast through contact with religious teachers, merchants and slave traders (Martin 1986; Oded 2000). Along the eastern coast and the islands of Kenya and Tanzania, Islam became an important force by the 17th century and remains the dominant religion today. The arrival of the Islamic religion and the concurrent Indian Ocean trade network helped to develop the coastal region into the distinct cultural and political entity known as the Swahili coast. In the 17th century, this 2000-mile long coast came under the domination of the Sultan of Oman, who moved his capital to the island of Zanzibar in the 19th century.
