Guide to Africa Bibliography

Barringer, T. A., Africa

Scope and coverage

This bibliography records publications on Africa of interest to students of Africa, principally in the social and environmental sciences, development studies, humanities and arts. Some items from the medical, biological and natural sciences are included. The criterion used is potential relevance to a reader from a social science/arts background. The whole continent and associated islands are covered but not the African diaspora. The 1998 edition aims to cover material published in 1998, together with items from 1997 hot previously liste& The editor is always very glad to hear of any items admitted so that they may be included in future editions. She would be particularly pleased to receive notification of new periodicals. African government publications and works of creative literature are hot normally listed.

The principal sources of data for this issue are the acquisitions and periodicals of Cambridge University Library, the African Studies Centre, Cambridge, SOAS and material received by the International African Institute. Most of this material has been personally examined by the editor. Some data has been garnered from other published bibliographies notably African Studies Abstracts and Historical Abstracts.


The arrangement of the bibliography is by region and country, with a preliminary section for the continent as a whole. Each region or country begins with a General section and then subject fields (see list below) follow in alphabetical ortier. Where an item might appear under more than one heading, this is indicated by cross reference (see the `see also' list immediately under each subject heading) or the subject index will guide users to it.

Education - Adult Education - Higher Forestry Fisheries Gay and Lesbian Studies Gender - Masculinity Human Rights
