Global Africa is a striking, original volume that disrupts traditional narratives that frame our discussion of Africa, complicating conventional views of the region as a place of violence, despair, and victimhood.  The volume documents the significant global connections, circulations, and contributions that African people, ideas, and goods have made throughout the world, from the United States, South Asia, Latin America, Europe, and elsewhere. Through succinct and engaging pieces by scholars, policy makers, activists, and journalists, the essays provide a wholly original view of a continent at the center of global historical processes rather than on its periphery. Global Africa offers fresh, complex, and insightful visions of a continent in flux.
