Peoples and Cultures of East Africa

Peoples and Cultures of East Africa

by Peter Mitchell

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
This portion of the six volume "Peoples and Cultures of Africa" series offers readers resources linked to the eastern nations of the African continent. Organized in an encyclopedia format, this book offers readers information about a range of subjects: linguistic differences, tribal variance, artistic trends, native cultures, and nationalities. Among the topics addressed are subjects of little controversy, such as metalworking across tribes, festivals, dance and song traditions, and architectural styles. Of greater friction are such subjects as the horrific violence between Hutu and Tutsi tribe members in Rwanda, Somalian civil war practices, and the history of Islam in the region. Across all subjects the insightful text is accompanied by a multitude of compelling color illustrations that highlight human faces, cultural traditions, landscape beauty, and the nature of life in a part of the world that contains a vast human potential amidst a sea of social inequality and ongoing violence.
