CHOICE Review

This collection consists of 13 essays by scholars in communications, English, sociology, law, international politics, anthropology, ethnomusicology, history, and education based in universities in the US, Nigeria, India, Puerto Rico, and Brazil. Its primary purpose is to examine the different processes of identity formation among Africans and African-descended peoples and how these have been impacted by globalization over the past few decades. While acknowledging past scholarship on ethnicity and identity at the national level in Uganda, South Africa, and the US, as well as transnationally in the Atlantic slave trade, editors Falola (UT Austin) and Hoyer (Univ. of Southern Indiana) have assembled studies of diasporic communities and their confrontations with race, racism, and identity organized into three sections. The first examines African-descended peoples' shifting identities during globalization. The second explores how race and ethnicity impact Africans globally. The third provides case studies of marginalized groups, such as women, children, and returnee refugees. The volume's ambitious range and multidisciplinary methodologies are to be commended, although, as in most such collections, the intellectual quality of the contributions is uneven. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. --Jeffrey R. Kerr-Ritchie, Howard University
