African Urban Spaces in Historical Perspective

African Urban Spaces in Historical Perspective (Rochester Studies in African History and the Diaspora) by Toyin Falola
University of Rochester Press | May 9, 2005 | English | ISBN: 1580461638 | 440 pages | PDF | 3 MB

African Urban Spaces in Historical Perspective presents new and interdisciplinary approaches to the study of African urban history and culture. It presents original research and integrates historical methodologies with those of anthropology, geography, literature, art, and architecture. Moving between precolonial, colonial, and contemporary urban spaces, it covers the major regions, religions, and cultural influences of sub-Saharan Africa. The themes include Islam and Christianity, architecture, migration, globalization, social and physical decay, identity, race relations, politics, and development. This book elaborates on not only what makes the study of African urban spaces unique within urban historiography, it also offers an-encompassing and up-to-date study of the subject and inserts Africa into the growing debate on urban history and culture throughout the world. The book is divided into four sections.
