MEDIA REVIEWS
"Entries include the correct pronunciation, the definition as the word has come to be used in English, the African derivation, and references to usage in both Western and African publications. . . . This is a most welcome reference tool that will prove useful on two levels. First, it fills a scholarly need. Collections that emphasize African linguistics will find it of considerable interest. More important, however, is its reference value for collections that emphasize Pan-Africanism and Afro-Americana. . . . Many of the references to usage come from publications that will be generally available in many collections, including newspapers, journals, and popular novels. Both academic and public libraries."-Choice
