Abstract:This textbook aims to provide readers with contributions on a wide range of issues affecting contemporary Africa. It wants to move away from Eurocentric approaches and instead focus on a Africa-centered optimistic message which it wants to achieve by an ''internal understanding.'' All of the contributors are active at the University of Ghana and most chapters focus on Ghana and West Africa. The book covers many diverse themes: geography, demography, language, culture, sociology, politics, economy, security, health, ecology, science & technology, and art. [ASC Leiden abstract]
