La ferme africaine by Karen Blixen Summary
" Quand le souffle passait en sifflant au-dessus de ma tête, c'était le vent dans les grands arbres de la forêt, et non la pluie. Quand il rasait le sol, c'était le vent dans les buissons et les hautes herbes, mais ce n'était pas la pluie. Quand il bruissait et chuintait à hauteur d'homme, c'était le vent dans les champs de maïs. Il possédait si bien les sonorités de la pluie que l'on se faisait abuser sans cesse, cependant, on l'écoutait avec un plaisir certain, comme si un spectacle tant attendu apparaissait enfin sur la scène. Et ce n'était toujours pas la pluie. Mais lorsque la terre répondait à l'unisson d'un rugissement profond, luxuriant et croissant, lorsque le monde entier chantait autour de moi dans toutes les directions, au-dessus et au-dessous de moi, alors c'était bien la pluie. C'était comme de retrouver la mer après en avoir été longtemps privé, comme l'étreinte d'un amant. " Une nouvelle traduction de l'un des titres les plus populaires de la littérature du vingtième siècle, qui se veut fidèle à la musique de Karen Blixen, à sa voix, à son style, unique dans les lettres danoises, et lui rend enfin tout son éclat.
Out of Africa I by John G Fleagle,John J. Shea,Frederick E. Grine,Andrea L. Baden,Richard E. Leakey Summary
For the first two thirds of our evolutionary history, we hominins were restricted to Africa. Dating from about two million years ago, hominin fossils first appear in Eurasia. This volume addresses many of the issues surrounding this initial hominin intercontinental dispersal. Why did hominins first leave Africa in the early Pleistocene and not earlier? What do we know about the adaptations of the hominins that dispersed - their diet, locomotor abilities, cultural abilities? Was there a single dispersal event or several? Was the hominin dispersal part of a broader faunal expansion of African mammals northward? What route or routes did dispersing populations take?

Out of Africa by Giovanni Carbone Summary
The EU is struggling to cope with the so-called “migration crisis” that has emerged over the past few years. Designing the right policies to address immigration requires a deep understanding of its root causes. Why do Africans decide to leave their home countries? While the dream of a better life in Europe is likely part of the explanation, one also needs to examine the prevailing living conditions in the large and heterogeneous sub-Saharan region. This Report investigates the actual role of political, economic, demographic and environmental drivers in current migration flows. It offers a comprehensive picture of major migration motives as well as of key trends. Attention is also devoted to the role of climate change in promoting migration and to intra-continental mobility (two-thirds of sub-Saharan migrant flows start and end within the region). Two country studies on Eritrea and Nigeria are also included to get a closer sense of local developments behind large-scale migration to Europe.
Who Went Out Of Africa by BGC Summary
We all heard of the theory of evolution: the process by which different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms during the history of the earth. Modern anthropology teaches that "man" has been developing for a very long time as much as five million years. How did modern anthropologists arrive at their conclusions? Let us examine the origins of modern evolutionary thinking, what is behind the theoretical statements about "early man".

Out of Africa by Pal Ahluwalia Summary
At the heart of this book is the argument that the fact that so many post-structuralist French intellectuals have a strong ‘colonial’ connection, usually with Algeria, cannot be a coincidence. The ‘biographical’ fact that so many French intellectuals were born in or otherwise connected with French Algeria has often been noted, but it has never been theorised. Ahluwalia makes a convincing case that post-structuralism in fact has colonial and postcolonial roots. This is an important argument, and one that ‘connects’ two theoretical currents that continue to be of great interest, post-structuralism and postcolonialism. The re-reading of what is now familiar material against the background of de-colonial struggles demonstrates the extent to which it is this new condition that prompted theory to question long-held assumptions inscribed in the European colonial enterprise. The wide-ranging discussion, ranging across authors as different as Foucault, Derrida, Fanon, Althusser, Cixous, Bourdieu and Lyotard, enables the reader to make connections that have remained unnoticed or been neglected. It also brings back into view a history of struggles, both political and theoretical, that has shaped the landscape of critique in the social sciences and humanities. This clear and lucid discussion of important and often difficult thinkers will be widely read and widely debated by students and academics alike.
