The latest African non fiction!
In the past few years, there have been a number of great books about Africa, many of which are written by African authors. You just have to keep an eye out for them. Here is a taste of some of my favorites. Most are new, some a little older (Hey, who doesn't like an occasional classic?!)   Print this list Print this list
