The Marginal Safari by Justin Fox Summary

“I've been craving the road for some time,” writes Justin Fox – odd words for this most seasoned of travel writers. But there is more to it: “Restless, anxious about an uneventful slide into my late 30s ...” And thus begins ten thousand kilometres around the edge of the Republic. Hugging the comforts which distance offers agitated souls, he bears east from Cape Town. This is fatherland, and for Justin his father’s land, which the famous architect Revel Fox has marked as much as he had shaped his son’s own identity. Justin tarries at outposts and towns; he skips entire cities to favour the off-beat treasures of characters fashioned less by convention than by their own battles against nature or circumstance. Back home his dad is fighting cancer. Having travelled with acute observation he reports like a novelist, stringing together scenes, pictures, communities and characters to form a totality of what South Africa is today as seen from its margins: a sad, exciting clash of histories and stories.

Rainbow Nation My Zulu Arse by Sihle Khumalo Summary

After exploring more than twenty other African nations using only public transport, Sihle Khumalo this time roams within the borders of his own country. The familiarity of his own car is a luxury, but what he finds on his journey through South Africa ranges from the puzzling to the downright bizarre. Voyaging from the northernmost part of South Africa right to the south, the author noses his car down freeways and back roads into small towns, townships, and villages, some of which you’ll have trouble finding on a map. But this is no clichéd description of beautiful landscapes and blue skies. Khumalo is out to investigate the state of the nation, from its highest successes to its most depressing failures. Whether or not he’s baffled, surprised, or sometimes plain angry, Sihle Khumalo will always find warmth in his fellow South Africans: security guards, religious visionaries, drunks, political activists and the many other colourful personalities that come alive in his riveting account.

Dark Star Safari by Paul Theroux Summary

In Dark Star Safari the wittily observant and endearingly irascible Paul Theroux takes readers the length of Africa by rattletrap bus, dugout canoe, cattle truck, armed convoy, ferry, and train. In the course of his epic and enlightening journey, he endures danger, delay, and dismaying circumstances. Gauging the state of affairs, he talks to Africans, aid workers, missionaries, and tourists. What results is an insightful meditation on the history, politics, and beauty of Africa and its people, and "a vivid portrayal of the secret sweetness, the hidden vitality, and the long-patient hope that lies just beneath the surface" (Rocky Mountain News). In a new postscript, Theroux recounts the dramatic events of a return to Africa to visit Zimbabwe.

Augusts in Africa by Thomas McIntyre Summary

Americans from Roosevelt to Hemingway to Ruark to Capstick to Robert Jones defined Africa in ways that no European colonist ever would or could. In Augusts in Africa, Thomas McIntyre presents the stories he has gathered from four decades of safari-ing in Africa—and from among the most transforming days, weeks, and months of his life. For those who know it well, these tales may read like accurate reflections of their own experiences on the continent. For others who have journeyed to Africa only briefly, or even not at all, there is a transporting insight to be found in them. And if there is more than one account on the hunting of the Cape buffalo, that is only because it, the buffalo, may simply represent the ideal combination (the “perfect game”) of size, strength, intelligence, and vehemence to be found in any large wild animal and is therefore indicative of what draws us back again and again to Africa. Whether crouched in a blind for hours until he can clearly make out the individual rosettes on a leopard’s hide or listening to the professional hunter utter “Oh oh, you should run” when faced with a charging elephant cow, Tom McIntyre brings to life amazing African animals and exciting expeditions in Augusts in Africa.

From the master of African adventure writing, Peter Hathway Capstick presents the first modern authoritative, comprehensive travel guide to African safari. Drawn from his years of experience as a professional hunter, Capstick’s Safari: The Last Adventure explains the preparations and procedures involved in his African expeditions: how to select and book a safari; where and when to go; fees and licenses; the guns, ammo, and personal equipment needed. Chapters on each of the Big Five (lion, Cape buffalo, elephant, leopard, and rhino—the trophies most hunters want to take) describe the techniques, thrills, and dangers of hunting these clever and cunning animals. The other memorable delights of safari, like camp life, bird shooting, fishing, photography, and game viewing in wildlife parks, are also celebrated in this indispensable guide. Packed with solid advice and nuggets of campfire lore and hunting yarns, illustrated with thirty-four black and white photographs and six line drawings, this indispensable book is a classic work in its field, essential equipment for anyone going on safari or just dreaming of one...

The Palgrave Handbook of Prison Ethnography by Deborah H. Drake,Rod Earle,J. Sloan Summary

The Palgrave Handbook of Prison Ethnography provides an expansive overview of the challenges presented by qualitative, and particularly ethnographic, enquiry. The chapters reflect upon the means by which ethnographers aim to gain understanding, make sense of what they learn and the way they represent their finished work. The Handbook offers urgent insights relevant to current trends in the growth of imprisonment worldwide. In an era of mass incarceration, human-centric ethnography provides an important counter to quantitative analysis and the audit culture on which prisons are frequently judged. The Handbook is divided into four parts. Part I ('About Prison Ethnography') assesses methodological, theoretical and pragmatic issues related to the use of ethnographic and qualitative enquiry in prisons. Part II ('Through Prison Ethnography') considers the significance of ethnographic insights in terms of wider social or political concerns. Part III ('Of Prison Ethnography') analyses different aspects of the roles ethnographers take and how they negotiate their research settings. Part IV ('For Prison Ethnography') includes contributions that convincingly extend the value of prison ethnography beyond the prison itself. Bringing together contributions by some of the world's leading scholars in criminology and prison studies, this authoritative volume maps out new directions for future research. It will be an indispensable resource for practitioners, students, academics and researchers who use qualitative social research methods to further their understanding of prisons.

Mortals by Norman Rush Summary

The greatly anticipated new novel by Norman Rush—whose first novel, Mating, won the National Book Award and was everywhere acclaimed—is his richest work yet. It is at once a political adventure, a social comedy, and a passionate triangle. It is set in the 1990s in Botswana—the African country Rush has indelibly made his own fictional territory. Mortals chronicles the misadventures of three ex-pat Americans: Ray Finch, a contract CIA agent, operating undercover as an English instructor in a private school, who is setting out on perhaps his most difficult assignment; his beautiful but slightly foolish and disaffected wife, Iris, with whom he is obsessively in love; and Davis Morel, an iconoclastic black holistic physician, who is on a personal mission to “lift the yoke of Christian belief from Africa.” The passions of these three entangle them with a local populist leader, Samuel Kerekang, whose purposes are grotesquely misconstrued by the CIA, fixated as the agency is on the astonishing collapse of world socialism and the simultaneous, paradoxical triumph of radical black nationalism in South Africa, Botswana’s neighbor. And when a small but violent insurrection erupts in the wild northern part of the country, inspired by Kerekang but stoked by the erotic and political intrigues of the American trio—the outcome is explosive and often explosively funny. Along the way, there are many pleasures. Letters from Ray’s brilliantly hostile brother and Iris’s woebegone sister provide a running commentary on contemporary life in America. Africa and Africans are powerfully evoked, and the expatriate scene is cheerfully skewered. Through lives lived ardently in an unforgiving land, Mortals examines with wit and insight the dilemmas of power, religion, rebellion, and contending versions of liberation and love. It is a study of a marriage over time, and a man’s struggle to find his way when his private and public worlds are shifting. It is Norman Rush’s most commanding work.

Urban Environments in Africa by Myers, Garth Summary

Africa’s urban population is growing rapidly, raising numerous environmental concerns. Urban areas are often linked to poverty as well as power and wealth, and hazardous and unhealthy environments as the pace of change stretches local resources. Yet there are a wide range of perspectives and possibilities for political analysis of these rapidly changing environments. Written by a widely respected author, this important book will mark a major new step forward in the study of Africa’s urban environments. Using innovative research including fieldwork data, map analysis, place-name study, interviewing and fiction, the book explores environmentalism from a variety of perspectives, acknowledging the clash between Western planning mind-sets pursuing the goal of sustainable development, and the lived realities of residents of often poor, informal settlements. The book will be valuable to advanced undergraduate and graduate level courses in geography, urban studies, development studies, environmental studies and African studies.

The Last Lions of Africa by Anthony Ham Summary

'Bravely pursued, acutely observed and elegantly told.' John Vaillant, author of The Tiger 'Urgent and important. This moving tale with a heroic cast of characters, leonine and human, is a must-read for anyone passionate about wildlife and wild places.' Tony Park, author of Last Survivor This is the riveting and illuminating story of Australian writer Anthony Ham's extraordinary journey into the world of lions. Haunted by the idea that they might disappear from the planet in our lifetime, he ventured deep into the African wilderness, speaking to local tribespeople and activists as well as to rangers, scientists and conservationists about why lions are close to extinction and what can be done to save them. In The Last Lions of Africa, we walk alongside Anthony as he reveals the latest extraordinary science surrounding the earth's dwindling lion populations and their often surprising relationship to mankind. As he uncovers heartbreaking and astonishing accounts of individual lions, prides and habitats, each chapter unfolds as both gripping campfire story and deeply researched exploration of larger mysteries in the natural world. Anthony's vivid storytelling weaves together natural history, ancient lore and multidisciplinary science to show us a world in which human populations are growing and wild lands are shrinking; where lions and indigenous peoples fight not for sovereignty over the land but for their very existence. In this gripping and crucial book, Anthony Ham brings Africa, its people and its endangered lions to magnificent life and shows the surprising ways those last lions might be saved.

The Value Of Nothing by Raj Patel Summary

'Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.' Credit has crunched, debt has turned toxic, the gears of the world economy have ground to a halt. Yet despite its failures, the same market-driven ideas are being applied to everything from famine to climate change. We need to ask again one of the most fundamental questions a society ever addresses: why do things cost what they do? Radical, original, nimbly argued, The Value of Nothing draws on ideas from history, philosophy, psychology and agriculture to show how we can build an economically and environmentally sound future.

Sex Tourism in Africa by Wanjohi Kibicho Summary

Illustrated by in-depth empirical research from Kenya - one of the most popular country destinations in Africa for sex tourism - this book gathers much-needed statistics and data, and then critically examines the features of tourism and the sex trade, contextualizing this in relation to tourism development. It addresses the conditions which generate this 'social problem' and, while not taking a potentially problematic moralistic stance it questions whether this trade is exploitative in nature, particularly in cases of child sex tourism. It then critically evaluates the current policies in place to regulate the sex tourism industry and provides suggestions for future direction.

Le Cinéma infiltré by Grover LEWIS Summary

« Contre toute attente, Peckinpah s’arrête quelques instants plus tard pour inviter le journaliste à boire un verre. “Qu’est-ce que vous voulez savoir au juste ? Vous devez déjà connaître toute la merde à propos de mes films, sinon vous ne seriez pas là.” »Entré à Rolling Stone en 1971, la même année que Hunter S. Thompson, Grover Lewis est l’un des pionniers du Nouveau Journalisme, adepte des récits alcoolisés et des reportages fleuves en immersion. Spécialisé dans le rock et le cinéma, il arpente librement les plateaux de tournage, un œil rivé sur les coulisses. Il y croise aussi bien des figures mythiques (Robert Mitchum, Steve McQueen, Jack Nicholson) qu’une foule d’anonymes, doublures, techniciens, voire simples badauds. Pour cet écorché vif originaire du Texas, chaque reportage est l’occasion d’une description minutieuse et amusée d’une culture, d’une époque et d’un coin de l’Amérique, profonde de préférence.Le Cinéma infiltré réunit des écrits de Grover Lewis parus entre 1971 et 1990: longs récits de tournages (La Dernière séance de Peter Bogdanovich, Vol au-des- sus d’un nid de coucou de Milos Forman...), mais aussi poème ou roman inachevé. D’un texte à l’autre, c’est la même sensibilité littéraire, le même ton singulier qui circulent, un mélange d’élégance, d’argot et d’humour.

Afrique des réseaux et mondialisation by N.A Summary

Dans quelle mesure les dynamiques sociales de réseaux, si ancrées dans les cultures africaines, suscitent-elles des processus d'adhésion et de participation à la mondialisation ? Les réponses de chercheurs d'équipes d'horizons divers sont multiformes, à l'image de la richesse des processus d'appropriation ou de réappropriation par les Africains, ouverts aux diasporas, de tout ce qui peut accompagner les solidarités : associations de femmes ou de jeunes, à dimensions locales ou internationales, réseaux professionnels ou ludiques, le tout à l'heure des dures lois des marchés, du tourisme concerté ou subi, de l'avion et de l'internet. Les liens sociaux ainsi renouvelés servent-ils de vecteurs aux modèles de développement, de pensée, de culture de système-monde au moment où la Chine et l'Inde sont en train de prendre une place de plus en plus importante à défaut d'imposer des modèles ? A contrario, produisent-ils des formes d'autonomie, voire de résistance à la mondialisation débouchant sur de véritables replis identitaires au nom de l'authenticité, de la négritude, du self reliance, du nationalisme ou de l'indépendance ? Cette réflexion a été lancée au début de 2001 dans le cadre d'une recherche expérimentale sur les " dynamiques locales de la mondialisation les Afriques en perspectives " pour le nouveau contrat d'objectifs de la Maison des Sciences de l'Homme d'Aquitaine. Les contributions émanent d'approches de ces questions par différentes disciplines des sciences humaines et sociales : géographie, sciences politiques, anthropologie, sociologie ou information-communication.
