Dr. Obasanjo begins with her heart-wrenching account of enduring a childhood with a chauvinist father engrossed in self-advancement to the detriment of his wife and children. Readers will find the personal accounts of Dr. Obasanjo nearly being killed in an assassination attempt and facing harassment from the government officials because of her status as the female daughter of the president. Dr. Obasanjo chronicles her path into her own political career, the many challenges of being a female politician in Nigeria, and the joys of overcoming obstacles. She gives readers her unique perspective on Africa and its developmental issues acquired through her life and education. The result is a memoir that is inspiring, entertaining, and educational.

In African American Visual Arts Celeste-Marie Bernier introduces readers to the sheer diversity, range, and experimental nature of African American art and artists and considers their relationship to key motifs within black culture and black experience in North America. The book traces the major developments in African American visual culture from its beginnings in the ceramics and textiles of slave artisans to later contributions in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries to the fine arts and abstract expressionism, sculpture, installation art, video art, and computer graphics. Bernier analyzes the work of twenty-one artists, including Elizabeth Catlett, Jacob Lawrence, William Edmondson, Howardena Pindell, Charles Alston, Romare Bearden, Norman Lewis, Betye Saar, Horace Pippin, and Kara Walker. She highlights key but frequently neglected and little-discussed black artists, situating their works within their specific historical and political contexts. Bernier provides a new understanding of their relationship to fundamental themes of the black experience such as black stereotyping and caricature in mainstream discourse, poverty in the inner city, and the division between the rural and the urban.

One of a series of reference volumes, each examining a cultural period of a particular nation. Culture is used in a broad sense to encompass all the ways in which a people define themselves, including a wide scope of human communication and expression, from advertising to fine art. Famous individuals are also covered, such as John Cgae, Jackson Pollock, Richard Burton, Mussolini, Lenin and Aretha Franklin. In addition, the text defines the entries and describes and analyzes the influence and significance of each one. For example, an entry on abstract expressionism will not only define the movement, but will also describe what it means to us and what it says about us. Entries range from 50 to 1000 words, with between 500 and 1000 entries appearing in each individual volume.
