Recent publications on Lusophone Africa

Dear colleagues,
Here are a few more recent publications about our favorite world area, if it can be so characterized. I hope to see a few of you this week in Washington DC at the African Studies Association meetings -- maybe we will cross paths at some of the panels on Lusophone Africa, as well as at our Lusophone African Studies Organization business meeting (Friday, 12:30-1:30, in the Hoover Room).

As always, let me know about your own publications, ksheldon@ucla.edu.
