Deliberate efforts are made to include articles in journals and chapters from edited books that are not Africa-specific - Always contains a major article on some important aspect of contemporary African bibliography by a leading librarian in the field.The Africa Bibliography is prepared in association with the International African Institute's journal Africa. Africa is the premier journal devoted to the study of African societies and culture. Published as the journal of the International African Institute, editorial policy encourages an interdisciplinary approach, involving the social sciences, history, the environment and life sciences. AFRICA aims to give increased attention to: - Historical trends - Issues of development - Links between local and national levels of society. At the same time, it maintains its commitment to the theoretically informed analysis of the realities of Africa's own cultural categories.
