Ann.: New textbook on African women's history

I am very pleased to let you know that my book -- African Women: Early History to the 21st Century -- has been published by Indiana University Press - just in time for summer reading and to consider for your fall or spring classes. While it is obviously essential for courses on African women, it will also be an important addition to reading lists for African history in general.
