Publisher: Edinburgh University Press

The Journal of the International African Institute.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 and 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.

Africa appears quarterly. Each issue contains four or five major articles,
arranged thematically, extensive review essays and substantial book reviews.
Special issues are frequent.
