Extractions: Sourcebook Africa is both the most clearly defined of continents - in its geography - and the hardest to pin down in historical terms. Human beings originated in Africa and, as a result, there is more diversity of human types and societies than anywhere else. It is not possible, in any non-ideological way, to claim any one of these peoples or societies as more essentially "African" than others; nor is it possible to exclude a given society as "not really African". On this site historical sources on the history of human societies in the continent of Africa are presented, when available, without making prejudgements about what is "African". This page is a subset of texts derived from the three major online Sourcebooks listed below. For more contextual information, for instance about the Islamic world, check out these web sites.

Extractions: From Down to Earth , December 31, 2002 When metaphors die, ideas pass away and a way of thinking is buried, says Sakar Khan. He is not a linguist. He is a musician. He plays the khamaicha a four-string instrument. Somewhere in his eighties, he is arguably the most revered of the musicians in his tribe the langas of Rajasthan. Reticently he shares his feelings, I see todays generation ignore the khamaicha. I cant help it. Music, like language, can provide only a metaphor for a way of life. When people lose a way of life, their language struggles to survive. In a similar vein, linguists remember Tefvik Esenc, the last speaker of Ubykh, a language once spoken in the northwestern Caucasus. Some years ago they scampered to his village of Haci Osman in Turkey to meet him. He had three sons, all of them unable to understand his tongue, preferring Turkish instead. He had already decided upon his epitaph. This is the grave of Tefvik Esenc. He was the last person able to speak the language they called Ubykh. He died in 1992. The language passed away with him. Then there is what linguist Bruce Connel recorded in a newsletter of the UK Foundation for Endangered Languages, under the heading obituaries. During fieldwork in the Mambila region of Cameroons Adawawa region in 1994-95,1 came across a number of moribund languages. . . one of these, Kasabe.. .had only one remaining speaker, Bogon. In November 1996 I returned to the Mambila region. Bogon had died on November 5, 1995 taking Kasabe with him. He is survived by a sister, who reportedly could understand Kasabe, but not speak it, and several children and grandchi1dren none of whom know the language.

Extractions: INTEGRATED CROP AND LIVESTOCK PRODUCTION The existing agricultural or farming systems in different ecological zones of West Africa are designed to produce subsistence food, cash sales and materials for local or industrial use. There is no generally accepted classification of farming systems in tropical Africa, but for convenience a classification which is based on intensity of cultivation and/or animal rearing is presented in Table 11. The various production systems are grouped under (i) traditional and transitional systems, and (ii) modern systems and their local adaptations. Traditional and Transitional Agricultural Systems In classical shifting cultivation, the homestead of the farmer is relocated near the cultivated fields after each cultivation phase. In practice the situation varies from where the farmer may never return to the same piece of land to situations where cultivation is repeated on the same plots. This cultivation system is ecologically viable in frontier situations where population density is low and fallow periods are long enough to restore soil fertility. Shifting cultivation in the classical sense has all but disappeared in West Africa and Morgan (1980) reported it to be restricted to parts of Ivory Coast and small areas between Nigeria and Cameroon (Figure 10). Nomadic herding is the extensive animal rearing counterpart of shifting cultivation in the savannah and more arid areas is discussed separately.
