Africa : endurance and change south of the Sahara by Catherine Coquery-Vidrovitch( Book )

9 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This masterful synthesis explains how Africa has come to be a land torn by incessant conflict among its impoverished peoples and countries, a continent living through the gravest social revolution of its history, experiencing the world's fastest demographic growth. Weaving together four major themes--population, political power, the peasantry, and the new growth of the cities--Coquery-Vidrovitch demonstrates the need to recognize the extremely complex heritage of African societies if one is to understand the present or act upon the future of the continent."

The history of African cities south of the Sahara : from the origins to colonization by Catherine Coquery-Vidrovitch( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cities have existed in sub-Saharan Africa since antiquity. But only now are historians and archaeologists rediscovering their rich heritage: the ancient ruins of Great Zimbabwe and Congo, the harbor cities at the Indian Ocean, the capitals of the Bantu Kingdoms, the Atlantic cities from the 16th to the 18th centuries, and the urban revolutions in the 19th century. Mercantile cities opened Africa to the world, Islamic cities became centers of scholarship and the trans-Saharan trade, Creole cities appeared after the first contact with Europeans, and Bantu cities of the hinterland reacted against them. The author has gone through vast numbers of archival records and conducted independent field research to analyze and describe the rich history of African cities even long before imperial colonization began, and she continues her story until the time of urban reorganization during industrialization. The result is a colorful panorama of urban lifestyles including unique examples of architecture, and lasting traditions of ethnic, cultural, religious, and commercial forms of co-existence
Africa and the Africans in the nineteenth century : a turbulent history by Catherine Coquery-Vidrovitch( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most histories seek to understand modern Africa as a troubled outcome of nineteenth century European colonialism, but that is only a small part of the story. In this celebrated book, beautifully translated from the French edition, the history of Africa in the nineteenth century unfolds from the perspective of Africans themselves rather than the European powers. It was above all a time of tremendous internal change on the African continent. Great jihads of Muslim conquest and conversion swept over west Africa. In the interior, warlords competed to control the internal slave trade. In the east, the sultanate of Zanzibar extended its reach via coastal and interior trade routes. In the north, Egypt began to modernize while Algeria was colonized. In the south, a series of forced migrations accelerated, spurred by the progression of white settlement. Through much of the century African societies assimilated and adapted to the changes generated by these diverse forces. In the end, the West's technological advantage prevailed and most of Africa fell under European control and lost its independence. Yet only by taking into account the rich complexity of this tumultuous past can we fully understand modern Africa from the colonial period to independence and the difficulties of today"--Publisher's description

Petite histoire de l'Afrique l'Afrique au sud du Sahara de la préhistoire à nos jours by Catherine Coquery-Vidrovitch( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in French and Italian and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'Afrique subsaharienne est le berceau de l'humanité, et son histoire la plus vieille du monde. Ce petit livre, qui se destine à un public curieux mais non spécialiste, se nourrit d'un demi-siècle de travaux fondamentaux portant sur la question. Non seulement il fait le point sur une histoire au moins aussi variée et passionnante que les autres, mais il s'attache à déconstruire un à un les grands clichés qui continuent de nourrir les imaginaires occidentaux ; ceux qui font de l'Afrique un continent subalterne, à part, irrémédiablement à la traîne.

13 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in French and English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Qu'est-ce que le développement? D'où nous vient cette notion? Ce concept de développement, typiquement occidental, comment les autres sociétés pouvaient-elles le recevoir et qu'en firent-elles lorsqu'il leur fut imposé comme recette obligée pour rattraper l'Occident? Telles sont les questions que soulèvent ces communications qui tentent d'apporter des éléments de réponse fondés sur l'analyse des processus historiques de "développement."
