Abstract

This volume present new research and critical debates in African book history, and brings together a range of disciplinary perspectives by scholars in the subject. It includes case studies from across Africa -- from Ethiopia to Cameroon, from Morocco to South Africa -- and from third-century manuscript traditions to twenty-first-century internet communications. The volume frames individual case studies in ways that resonate with critical debates in African book history throughout the continent.
