Christianity, Islam, and Orisa-Religion: Three Traditions in Comparison and Interaction (The Anthropology of Christianity Book 18)

by J.D.Y. Peel

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s open access publishing program for monographs. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. The Yoruba of southwestern Nigeria are exceptional for the copresence among them of three religious traditions: Islam, Christianity, and the indigenous orisa religion. In this comparative study, at once historical and anthropological, Peel explores the intertwined character of the three religions and the dense imbrication of religion in all aspects of Yoruba history up to the present. For over 400 years, the Yoruba have straddled two geocultural spheres: one reaching north over the Sahara to the world of Islam, the other linking them to the Euro-American world via the Atlantic. These two external spheres we...

War with the Boer

by Adrian Musgrave

A hard-hitting chronological account of the second Boer war, which opens with a strong criticism of the easy methods followed by some authors of writing war histories by sitting at home and compiling “fat newspaper dispatches.” In his foreword, George Clarke Musgrave argues that this prevents a true analysis and understanding of the war and shows contempt for those, on both sides, seeking to explain their conflicting views and aspirations.The scene is set with the sending of the Boer ultimatum from President Kruger to England, followed by a general overview of the South African republics and the key factors which led to the war, building to the opening of hostilities at Kraaipan in October 1899, and the military operations that followed. In vivid and graphic detail, based on his own ex...

Ancient Egypt: A Guide to the Gods, Pharaohs, Dynasties, and Traditions of Ancient Egypt

by Patrick Auerbach

Ancient Egypt's impact on later cultures was immense. You could say that Egypt provided the building blocks for Greek and Roman culture, and, through them, influenced all of the Western tradition. Today, Egyptian imagery, concepts, and perspectives are found everywhere; you will find them in architectural forms, on money, and in our day to day lives. Many cosmetic surgeons, for example, use the silhouette of Queen Nefertiti (whose name means “the beautiful one has come”) in their advertisements.

Ancient Egyptian civilization lasted for more than 3000 years and showed an incredible amount of continuity. That is more than 15 times the age of the United States, and consider how often our culture shifts; less than 10 years ago, there was no Facebook, Twitter, or Youtube.

Computer Curious: Stories and lessons from the dawn of the digital age in africa

by Marc Maxmeister

Back in the early 2000s, before Facebook existed, before Google was a verb, African youths were flocking to the Internet. I trekked across Gambia, Senegal, and Ghana in search of what drew them to the Internet. After visits to 30 schools and hundreds of Interviews, I discovered that curiosity and a drive to create in a culture where education stifles creativity was the deeper reason behind the allure of the Internet.

In this book I focus on why and how computer culture evolved in Africa, and wrap it in my own adventures of exotic discomfort on the open road, ill-conceived conceits to bring Internet to remote villages, rocket yams in the name of science, wandering through a refugee camp to deliver a letter, hobnobbing with power mongers in the capitol, and generally seeing how ...

Petra: The True And Surprising History Of The Lost City Of Stone

by Patrick Auerbach

This book contains information about a rich historical site in Jordan. This ancient site was crafted using the cliffs of sandstone in the south of the country. The word “Petra” is of Greek origin and means “rock”, which perfectly suits a city carved into the cliffs of Jordan.

The Rediscovered City of Stone:
Just a few hours south of the country’s capital, Amman, the area was officially founded by the Arab tribe of nomads. This occurred centuries before Christ was born. This tribe was well known for their impeccable engineering, agriculture, trading, and of course, stone-carving skills. Much is still unknown about this ancient culture, but we know for sure that they were incredibly talented artists and engineers.

At this city, a people called the ...

Psychiatry and Decolonisation in Uganda (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Yolana Pringle

This open access book investigates psychiatry in Uganda during the years of decolonisation. It examines the challenges facing a new generation of psychiatrists as they took over responsibility for psychiatry at the end of empire, and explores the ways psychiatric practices were tied to shifting political and development priorities, periods of instability, and a broader context of transnational and international exchange. At its heart is a question that has concerned psychiatrists globally since the mid-twentieth century: how to bridge the social and cultural gap between psychiatry and its patients? Bringing together archival research with oral histories, Yolana Pringle traces how this question came to dominate both national and international discussions on mental health care reform, includ...

Ancient chariots of the Sahara (The forgotten civilisations of Africa)

by Taklit Mebarek

The war chariot pulled by horses is one of the most prestigious inventions ever. It is common to think that any invention in the Ancient Times, any form of civilization can only come from the East. It is the same for the invention of the chariot.

But what is the reality?

The war chariot drawn by horses was introduced in East and Ancient Egypt, around 1900 before Christ, by invaders that had swept the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia, Babylonia, Palestine, Syria and in Egypt. Then these invaders settled and created new civilizations in the East and in Egypt.

Who are they and where do they come from?

For the Egyptologists, these invaders who destabilized the pharaonic power in Egypt are Palestinians. However, Palestine is itself destroy...
