Kurzbeschreibung

19. November 2013 Queenship and Power
Born to an African king in colonial Sierra Leone at the beginning of the twentieth century, Princess Fatima Massaquoi lived an extraordinary life that encapsulated the contradictions, upheavals, and unprecedented opportunities of her time. This critical edition of her memoirs makes her story available to readers for the first time. Beginning with her lovingly recounted memories of growing up in Liberia, it follows her to Hamburg, Germany, where she pursued an education and forged friendships, but also experienced the racism, terror, and nationalistic fervor that accompanied the Nazis' rise to power. In the face of these mounting dangers, Massaquoi traveled to the United States, where she furthered her studies, embracing her newfound freedom even as she observed deteriorating conditions in the segregated American South in the early years of the civil rights movement. Spanning continents and cultures, this narrative introduces us to a truly remarkable woman while offering a fascinating window into the complex history of the twentieth century.

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

3.0 von 5 Sternen 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.
