Description

This is the first of a planned three-volume bibliography that aims to 'bring together all the English language publications written about women in Africa during the United Nations Decade for Women.' It includes books, monographs, government reports, articles from journals and collections of essays, conference papers, and US dissertations. The entries are organized in 32 subject sections ranging from agriculture to women and their children. . . . This bibliography is useful in providing a variety of references on African Women in one source and especially in including reports of international organizations. Choice The roles and needs of African women have been largely neglected in Third World policy-making by governments and international organizations despite the existence of recent research providing the basis and justification for new policies. This work, the first volume of a three-part bibliography, makes that research available to researchers and policy-makers. Focusing on works with a broad application, it provides comprehensive listings of resources relating to the situation of women in Africa. The bibliography is divided into 32 subject categories covering topics ranging from marriage and family issues to work, legal rights, politics, the arts, and urban life. Devoted to original English-language research works, it includes journal articles, book chapters, theses and dissertation, conference papers, and individual books on women in Africa and the Third World. Useful supplementary listings are supplied in appendices. A significant contribution to African studies and the social sciences, African Women will help focus attention on the considerable body of research findings on this topic. Appropriate for reference collection in African studies, Third World studies, anthropology, sociology, political economy, and a variety of other fields.
