Download or read book Africa in America written by Michael Mullin and published by University of Illinois Press. This book was released on 1992 with total page 436 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In an attempt to lay bare the historical and cultural roots of modern African American societies in the South and the British West Indies, Michael Mullin gives a vivid depiction of slave family life, economic strategies, and religion and their relationship to patterns of resistance and acculturation in two major plantation regions, the Caribbean and the American South. Generalized observations of plantation slavery, usually assumed to be the whole of Africans' experience, fail to provide definitive answers about how they met and often overcame the challenges and deprivations of their new lives. Mullin discusses three phases of slave resistance and religion in Anglo-America, both on and off plantations. During the first, or African, phase from the 1730s to the 1760s slave resistance was generally sudden, violently destructive, and charged with African ritual. The second phase, from the late 1760s to the early 1800s, involved plantation slaves who were more conservative and wary. The third phase, from the late 1760s to the second quarter of the nineteenth century, was led by assimilated blacks - artisans and drivers - who, having developed skills both on and off the plantation, led the large preemancipation rebellions. Mullin's case studies of slaveowners and plantation overseers draw on personal diaries and other documents to reveal memorable men whose approaches to their jobs varied widely and were as much affected by interactions with slaves as by personal background, the location of the plantation, and the economic climate of the times. Extensive archival and anecdotal sources inform this pioneering study of slavery as it was practiced in tidewater Virginia, on the rice coast of the Carolinas, and in Jamaica and Barbados. Bringing his training in anthropology to bear on sources from Great Britain, the Caribbean, and the United States, Mullin offers new and definitive information.
Download or read book Traditional Cosmology vol 5 Solar and Lunar Anomalies written by Marinus Anthony van der Sluijs and published by All-Round Publications. This book was released on 2018-01-01 with total page 356 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This work, in 6 volumes, is a compendium of traditional cosmologies worldwide. The material includes the global mythology of creation and destruction, but also comprises information drawn from other areas of traditional knowledge, ritual, iconography, shamanism, costume, and dance. Relying on original sources, universal points of agreement are identified, often on counter-intuitive ideas. These suggest a single template, a blueprint for a universal mythology of origins with local variations. Volume 5 documents a large number of traditions concerning unusual and often undesirable properties and activities of the sun and moon. To name just a few examples, prominent beliefs were that the moon was originally brighter than the sun and that the earth once succumbed to the heat caused by the sun's former proximity, its greater strength, its failure to move or the appearance of multiple luminaries.
Download or read book Two Moons in Africa written by Brent Swan and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2009-12 with total page 260 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For an autographed copy, Please call Barbara or Brent at (352)493-2257 Brent Swan slowed his truck and found himself looking down the barrel of an AK-47 assault rifle. A movement at the passenger window caused him to shift his gaze to the right and into the face of a grenade launcher. "I thought it was a cannon," Brent said in 2005, fifteen years after his capture in Angola by Cabindian rebels. Just minutes earlier, he had been cruising south, down a road that paralleled the Atlantic Ocean, having left the Chevron oil compound, Malongo, at six o'clock on Friday morning, October 19, 1990. The fog and mist lay heavy around his new company pickup truck. He smelled the ever-present odor of burning petroleum from the flares burning off the excess natural gas at Malongo. On this morning, he needed to be at the Cabinda Airport early enough to do an inspection of the oxygen masks on the King Air before the plane took off for Luanda, the capital of Angola. Brent worked for Petroleum Helicopters Inc. as an aircraft mechanic. PHI was contracted by Chevron to provide helicopters and the King Air for their personnel. Cabinda is one of eighteen provinces in Angola, but its position is unique. It does not border any part of Angola and is separated from its governing body by the Democratic Republic of Congo, known as Zaire at the time of Brent's kidnapping. Cabinda shares a northern border with the Congo, and many Cabindians believe they should be an independent entity. Brent Swan began his sixty-one days as a hostage the moment he slowed his truck for members of the Front for the Liberation of the Enclave of Cabinda in Angola in 1990. Even though Brent provided the FBI with complete descriptions of his kidnappers and their camps, it took until 2003 for just one of those kidnappers to be brought to trial, with outstanding warrants still on file with the U.S. Justice Department for three others. The second kidnapper was arrested in The Hague in June of 2005, but the Netherlands released him until a later date, but Bembe left the country and never returned to The Hague. The court dismissed the extradition request because Bembe was presumably no longer under Dutch jurisdiction. The U.S. government contacts the Swans and gives them information when they might need Brent as a witness, and each time they receive a call, they are thrown back to 1990 and forced to relieve the nightmare once again. There are days when they aren't sure who the real terrorists are. Two Moons in Africa: Barbara and Brent Swan's Story of Terrorism brings Brent out of the jungle with Barbara at his side. It is the story of Brent's literal journey into a dark and dank jungle at the hands of rebels. It is the story of Barbara's journey as well as she awaited first his release and then his recovery. It is the story of the love between two people who suffered and survived. But it is also the story of a country crammed with deadly land mines and embroiled in decades-long civil wars. It tells of a people destroyed by hopeless poverty while oil fields and diamond mines sit within view but beyond reach. It shows the true meaning of Africa as the Dark Continent. It is the story of rebels so intent upon their cause that the troubles of one American family have no bearing upon their fight. In fact, these fighters for Cabinda's liberation felt they were so right in their cause, they made Brent Swan an honorary citizen of a country that does not exist except in their minds. It is also the story of how victims of terrorism are treated in the aftermath of the terrorist act as justice is sought but not always achieved. Two Moons in Africa represents their desire to tell the story. It is Barbara's and Brent's attempt to take control of a situation that has been out of their hands since 1990. But it has never been out of their minds or hearts or souls. Today, they still wonder about justice, but with the publication of Two Moons in Africa, they have found a way to express

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: James MacQueen (1778-1870) was a British geographer fascinated by the problem of the River Niger. He set out to try to establish (on the basis of accounts by explorers, traders and missionaries), that one and the same river flowed continuously through Africa and into the Atlantic Ocean, thus challenging long-established beliefs that African rivers either disappeared into the sand or terminated in lakes. MacQueen documents his findings in this pioneering work, first published in 1821. Drawing on evidence from a range of authorities, he argues that previous misconceptions about the Niger had left Africa isolated from the civilised world, and shows how his discovery could open up trading opportunities between Africa and other countries, suggesting that contact with Europeans would lead to the eventual abolishment of the slave trade in the interior. This important study remains relevant to scholars of both geography and African history today.
