About this Item

Library stamps/marks/labels/pocket residue, otherwise light wear. Solid hardcover.; "This study, then, is an attempt to discover the origins and subsequent development of an American tradition of viewing Africa by examining the experiences of those Americans who had actually journeyed to Africa. It is not a history of African-American relations, although the subjects of colonization, commercial exploitation, and American missionary activity in Africa are not ignored. Nor is it a history of the American contribution to the discovery of Africa, although it does deal with the American presence on the continent as well. Rather, it is an examination of how Africa and Africans - both the land and its peoples - were seen by Americans in Africa and ultimately how their descriptions shaped American ideas about the continent in a very particular way. Thus the central focus of my efforts is on discovering how Americans in their writings created a language of discourse about Africa and Africans." - Preface. ; Contributions in Afro-American and African Studies; Ex-Library; Vol. 75; xxviii, 192 pages.
