Afro-Atlantic dialogues : anthropology in the diaspora

Yelvington, Kevin A., 1960- (Added Author).

Summary: "This book breaks new theoretical and methodological ground in the study of the African diaspora in the Atlantic world. Leading scholars of archaeology, linguistics, and socio-cultural anthropology draw upon extensive field experiences and archival investigations of black communities in North America, the Caribbean, South America, and Africa to challenge received paradigms in Afro-American anthropology."--Jacket.
