A new edition of the book:
Studying Africa : a guide to the sources
THE SECOND EDITION
Edited by Marianne Andersson and Åsa Lund Moberg
with literature surveys by Tore Linné Eriksen.
Studying Africa is a guide to African studies, primarily within the area of social sciences. The book provides practical guidance on handbooks, databases, statistics and other support for literature and fact searches, as well as an introduction to the topics "The history of Africa" and "Politics, economics and society".
The book is aimed at university students and researchers, but other groups, such as teachers and pupils at upper secondary schools and folk high schools, librarians, journalists and aid workers, may also find it useful. The ambition is to give a clear and practical guide to literature.
