“A hopeful narrative about a continent on the rise.” —New York Times Book Review "For anyone who wants to understand how the African economy really works, The Bright Continent is a good place to start." —Reuters Dayo Olopade knew from personal experience that Western news reports on conflict, disease, and poverty obscure the true story of modern Africa. And so she crossed sub-Saharan Africa to document how ordinary people deal with their daily challenges. She found what cable news ignores: a continent of ambitious reformers and young social entrepreneurs, driven by kanju—creativity born of African difficulty. It’s a trait found in pioneers like Kenneth Nnebue, who turned cheap VHS tapes into the multimillion-dollar film industry Nollywood. Or Ushahidi, a technology collective that crowdsources citizen activism and disaster relief. A shining counterpoint to the conventional wisdom, The Bright Continent rewrites Africa’s challenges as opportunities to innovate, and celebrates a history of doing more with less as a powerful model for the rest of the world. "[An] upbeat study of development in Africa...The book is written more in wonder at African ingenuity than in anger at foreign incomprehension." —The New Yorker

Afrika ist ein armer Kontinent. Ein Kontinent voller Hunger, blutiger Konflikte, gescheiterter Staaten, voller Korruption und Elend. Um zu helfen, adoptieren Prominente afrikanische Halbwaisen und flanieren durch Flüchtlingslager, laden die Gutmenschen unter den Popstars zu Benefiz-Konzerten, und westliche Staaten haben in den letzten 50 Jahren eine Billion Dollar an afrikanische Regierungen gezahlt. Aber trotz Jahrzehnten von billigen Darlehen, nicht rückzahlbaren Krediten, Schuldenerlassen, bilateraler und multilateraler Hilfe steht Afrika schlimmer da als je zuvor. Mit Dead Aid hat Dambisa Moyo ein provokatives Plädoyer gegen Entwicklungshilfe und für Afrika geschrieben. Knapp, faktenreich und zwingend legt sie ihre Argumente dar. Entwicklungshilfe, im Sinne von Geld-Transfers zwischen Regierungen, macht abhängig. Sie zementiert die bestehenden Gegebenheiten, fördert Korruption und finanziert sogar Kriege. Sie zerstört jeden Anreiz, gut zu wirtschaften und die Volkswirtschaft anzukurbeln. Entwicklungshilfe zu beziehen ist einfacher, als ein Land zu sanieren. Im Gegensatz zu Bono und Bob Geldoff weiß Moyo, wovon sie spricht. Die in Sambia geborene und aufgewachsene Harvard-Ökonomin arbeitete jahrelang für die Weltbank. In Dead Aid erklärt sie nicht nur, was die negativen Folgen von Entwicklungshilfe sind und warum China für Afrika eine Lösung und nicht Teil des Problems ist; sie entwirft zudem einen Weg, wie sich Afrika aus eigener Kraft und selbstbestimmt entwickeln kann. In den USA und Großbritannien löste Dead Aid eine hitzige Debatte aus. Es stand mehrere Wochen auf der New York Times Bestsellerliste und wurde vom Sunday Herald zum Buch des Jahres gewählt. Das Time Magazine wählte Dambisa Moyo 2009 zu einer der 100 wichtigsten Persönlichkeiten der Welt.

In der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts beginnt Deutschland, seinen ‘Platz an der Sonne’ zu erobern. Während die deutsche Kolonialgeschichte in Afrika jedoch ein vergleichsweise kurzes Intermezzo bleibt, das nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg mit den Versailler Verträgen seinen unrühmlichen politischen Abschluss findet, floriert der Afrika-Diskurs auf literarischer und kultureller Ebene bis in die Gegenwart hinein und läuft anderen Projektionsräumen des Fremden/Exotischen – gerade in der jüngsten Vergangenheit – den Rang ab. Wie haben sich deutsche Diskurse über Afrika und Afrikaner vom späten 19. bis in das 21. Jahrhundert entwickelt? Und was wird aus den tradierten Projektionen und negativen wie positiven Stereotypisierungen im Zeitalter der Globalisierung, des Multikulturalismus und weltweiter Migrationsbewegungen? Die vorliegende Aufsatzsammlung liefert ein in diesem Facettenreichtum bisher nicht gegebenes Spektrum: Afrikanische und deutsche Wissenschaftler befragen nicht nur Literatur (darunter auch afrikanische und afrodeutsche Texte) im engeren Sinne, sondern werten auch historische Bild- und Textdokumente zur Situation von schwarzen Kriegsgefangenen während des Ersten Weltkrieges aus, beschäftigen sich mit der Darstellung des ‘Katastrophenkontinents’ in der Gegenwartskunst und in den populären Medien (journalistische Berichterstattung, Dokumentarisches, Spielfilm) und rekonstruieren die Geschichte afrikanischer Germanisten in Deutschland.

THE DARK & BRIGHT CONTINENT: AFRICA IN THE CHANGING WORLD, has been described as one of the best written books about Africa by an African. The book kicks off with the Rhythms of Life; then it moves on to dissect the Ancient African Politics & Beliefs, Slavery & Colonization, Political, & Economic Independence of Africa. The reader is juxtaposed with the Coup D'Etat in Africa; he is taken from Rip Van Winkle as Africa, to Africa & the World; from Foreign Media & Africa to the Exogenous Use of Africans. It reaches its climax with The Future of Africa, which challenges everyone, & knocks on the conscience of the world. Said Dr. Alphine Jefferson, Professor of History & Director of African-American Studies at SMU, "....I have learned a lot from this book. If I am to teach an advanced course in African History, I will use it."

Was bedeutet eigentlich Schicksal?Nazneen, in den ärmsten Verhältnissen in Bangladesch aufgewachsen, wird mit 19 Jahren verheiratet und ins ferne England geschickt. Ohne Englischkenntnisse landet sie in der Brick Lane, dem »Klein-Indien« von London, bei einem ihr völlig fremden Ehemann. Chanu ist gut zu ihr, doch aus ihrer Wohnung kommt sie selten raus. Gegen seinen Widerstand lernt sie schließlich Englisch und nimmt eine Arbeit als Näherin an. Ganz langsam, mit Hilfe ihrer Töchter und getragen von ihrer natürlichen Lebensklugheit, verlässt Nazneen den ihr vorbestimmten Weg.
