The Invention of tradition by E. J Hobsbawm( Book )

112 editions published between 1983 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 2,133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many of the traditions which we think of as very ancient in their origins were not in fact sanctioned by long usage over the centuries, but were invented comparatively recently. This book explores examples of this process of invention - the creation of Welsh and Scottish 'national culture'; the elaboration of British royal rituals in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries; the origins of imperial rituals in British India and Africa; and the attempts by radical movements to develop counter-traditions of their own. It addresses the complex interaction of past and present, bringing together historians and anthropologists in a fascinating study of ritual and symbolism which poses new questions for the understanding of our history

Epidemics and ideas : essays on the historical perception of pestilence by T. O Ranger( Book )

29 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From plague to AIDS, epidemics have been the most spectacular diseases to afflict human societies. This volume examines the ways in which these great crises have influenced ideas, how they have helped to shape theological, political and social thought, and how they have been interpreted and understood in the intellectual context of their time." "The first chapters look at classical Athens, early medieval Europe and the Islamic world, in order to establish the intellectual traditions which influenced later developments. Then there are contributions on responses to different epidemics in early modern and modern Europe, where western notions of 'public health' were defined: and chapters on the ways in which disease was perceived outside Europe, in India, Africa and the Pacific, where different intellectual traditions and different disease patterns came together. The final chapters brings us back home, looking at the ways in which policies towards AIDS have been formulated in the 1980s and drawing striking parallels as well as contrasts with the social construction of disease in the more remote past."--Jacket

Postcolonial identities in Africa by Richard P Werbner( Book )

12 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, distinguished anthropologists, political scientists and social historians from Africa, Europe and America make a radical break with much conventional wisdom in postcolonial discourse to explore contemporary African identities in transition. Addressing fundamental issues of political violence, the negation of authority in public life, and peaceful change to multi-party politics, their analyses distinguish the varied impact of generational struggles, ethnicity and nationalism. Throughout, they shed new light on images, emblems of identity, social landscapes and boundaries of belonging

Evangelical Christianity and democracy in Africa by T. O Ranger( Book )

22 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent decades, Christianity has acquired millions of new adherents in Africa, the region with the world's fastest-expanding population. What role has this development of evangelical Christianity played in Africa's democratic history? To what extent do its churches affect its politics? By taking a historical view and focusing specifically on the events of the past few years, Evangelical Christianity and Democracy in Africa seeks to explore these questions, offering individual case studies of six countries: Nigeria, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Kenya, Zambia, and Mozambique. Unlike most analyses of democracy which come from a secular Western tradition, these contributors, mainly younger scholars based in Africa, bring first-hand knowledge to their chapters and employ both field and archival research to develop their data and analyses. - Publisher
Violence & memory : one hundred years in the "dark forests" of Matabeleland by Jocelyn Alexander( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Violence has powerfully shaped the history and memory of the past in Matabeleland, from the wars of colonial conquest in the 1890s to the devastating post-colonial violence of the 1980s. The story told in this book concerns the remote, forested wilderness of the Shangani Reserve. It is the story of the settlement of a disease-ridden frontier and its transformation, first into the rural heartland of a nationalist movement, and later into a refuge for post-liberation 'dissidents'." "Silence has surrounded the history of this region of Zimbabwe, and this silence has produced a profound sense of exclusion from national memory. This book helps to break that silence and redress the imbalances of national history."--Jacket

Bulawayo burning : the social history of a southern African city, 1893-1960 by T. O Ranger( Book )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is designed as a tribute and response to Yvonne Vera's famous novel 'Butterfly Burning', which is set in the Bulawayo townships in 1946 and dedicated to the author. It is an attempt to explore what historical research and reconstruction can add to the literary imagination. Responding as it does to a novel, this history imitates some fictional modes. Two of its chapters are in effect 'scenes', dealing with brief periods of intense activity. Others are in effect biographies of 'characters'. The book draws upon and quotes from a rich body of urban oral memory. In addition to this historical/literary interaction the book is a contribution to the historiography of southern African cities, bringing out the experiential and cultural dimensions, and combining black and white urban social history.
