Reseña del editor
Afrocentricity is a philosophical and theoretical perspective that emphasizes the study of Africans as subjects, not as objects, and is opposed to perspectives that attempt to marginalize African thought and experience. Afrocentricity became popular in the 1980s as scores of African American and African scholars adopted an Afrocentric orientation to information. The editor of this collection argues that as scholars embark upon the 21st century, they can no longer be myopic in their perceptions and analyses of race. The sixteen essays examine a wide range of variations on the Afrocentric paradigm in the areas of history, literature, political science, philosophy, economics, women's studies, cultural studies, ethnic studies and social policy. The essays, written by professors, librarians, students and others in higher education who have embraced the Afrocentric perspective, are divided into four sections: ""Pedagogy and Implementation,"" ""Theoretical Assessment,"" ""Critical Analysis,"" and ""Pan Africanist Thought.Ver Descripción del producto

One tendency of anthologies that I have observed is that the editor's contribution is often the best chapter in the book. I don't know if they are trying to one-up the others or what. Here, the exact opposite is true. Conyers' chapter is dog-awful. It has no structure. It analyzes an unrepresentative number of texts. He even writes, "Whaaaateeeverrrr!" at some point. Maybe he should have just stayed out of the mix.
I was not blown away by this book. However, I think it could be useful for undergraduates and academic writers.
