Pressestimmen

"A truly fascinating autobiography of arguably the most intriguing woman in Liberia in the first half of the twentieth century, supplying a rich mine of information on the Vai, on early Liberia, the power elite, and race relations in three countries-Germany, Switzerland, and the United States. Superbly edited by three competent hands, Fatima Massaquoi comes through as well-bred, royal, regal, and majestic. This is a book to teach students about the transformative powers of nationalism, transnationalism, and cosmopolitanism." - Toyin Falola, author of a Mouth Sweeter Than Salt: An African Memoir "Vivian Seton, Konrad Tuchscherer, and Arthur Abraham have given us a great gift: a memoir of a fascinating woman who was a lively and perceptive observer of a critical period of world history, in Africa, Germany, and the United States. It is a rich and rewarding book, expertly edited and introduced, now properly preserved for posterity." - Marcus Rediker, author of The Amistad Rebellion: An Atlantic Odyssey of Slavery and Freedom "[This is a] one-of-a-kind tale of a life lived on three continents, chronicling everything from insider views of traditional life and societies in Africa, to intense racism in other parts of the world." - Jenee Desmond-Harris, TheRoot.com "Gem of a book ... beautifully written, exquisitely edited ... An important contribution to the understanding of 20th-century African history." - Elizabeth Schmidt, Professor of History, Loyola University of Maryland, author of Foreign Intervention in Africa (CUP, 2013) 'The Autobiography of an African Princess takes us on an extraordinary trans-Atlantic journey from Gendema in Sierra Leone, to Monrovia in Liberia, Hamburg in Germany, Geneva in Switzerland, Tennessee in the United States, and back to Monrovia. During that journey, local histories, cultures, languages, and values crossed part with the darker side of human nature that found expression in racial bigotry - Nazism and Jim Crowism - sexism, and ethnocentrism.' - African Studies Quarterly (December 2014)

Seton has worked for the Voice of America and the German Broadcasting System and publishes Lady magazine. Konrad Tuchscherer is a specialist in the history of written traditions in Africa, including the Vai script of Liberia, and his work has appeared in major journals and featured in reports by the BBC and NPR. He is the past recipient of Marshall and Fulbright awards.

A little disappointed 20. Januar 2014
Von Leon Robinson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The story is very interesting, but the quality of the book is not that good. The paper, photographic reproduction feel of the book is lacking. I'm just a little disappointed with the overall quality of the book.
