From Afar to Zulu: A Dictionary of African Cultures.
Haskins, Jim; Biondi, Joann
This resource provides information on over 30 of Africa's most populous and well-known ethnic groups. The text concisely describes the history, traditions, environment, social structure, religion, and daily lifestyles of these diverse cultures. Each entry opens with a map outlining the area populated by the group and a list of key data regarding languages spoken, total population, and primary food. Each group is discussed in terms of early, pre-Islamic, and pre-colonial history as well as recent developments. Appendices contain a list of additional African cultures, a glossary, references, and an index. (MM)
