Ama Ata Aidoo comes across as a sturdy, well-rounded, dignified and reputable writer of world class, not only in the originality, complexity and sophistication of her thoughts, but also in the diversity of the possibilities in her writing. Students of cultural politics, international relations, womens' studies, history and African studies will find this anthology a compelling resource.
