Summary
"How do Africans conceive space? How are places constructed and imagined? How do the conceptions, constructions, imaginings of spaces and places affect, and in turn are affected by, social, economic and political change? These are some of the questions this book seeks to answer. It is the first book of its kind in African studies to address itself systematically to the themes of space and spatiality."--Jacket
