'Since the 1960s David Birmingham has been one of the most perceptive observers of the unfolding story of Portuguese-speaking Africa...It is very appropriate, therefore, that in the year in which he officially retires this collection of essays should appear to mark the climax of a distinguished career...All these essays are written with an overriding preoccupation to communicate and to present complicated stories in a way that the reader can appreciate and assimilate...The reader of this collection will be taken on a nostalgic journey back through three decades of Afircan historiography and through the turbulent times that Angola has faced since 1961...One can almost hear future generations of history professors telling their students - read Miller, Hilton, Heimer and Pelissier, oh, and see what David Birmingham has to say on the subject.' - Malyn Newitt, African History
'Since the 1960s David Birmingham has been one of the most perceptive observers of the unfolding story of Portuguese-speaking Africa...little classics, intelligent, witty, informed and always enlightening.' - Malyn Newitt, Journal of African History
