Josef Schmied (ed.)
Linguistics in the Service of Africa


Contributors to this volume explore Africa's needs and priorities in research and research application in the field of English, sociolinguistic and African languages. They emphasize the interrelation between research on languages and language situations and attitudes in the African context.

This calls for a sociolinguistic approach and a collaboration between specialists in English and African languages from "the South" as well as from "the North".

Koffi Anyinefa
Littérature et Politique en Afrique Noire


The relations and the mutual interdependance of politics and literature are one of the key topics in the critical discourse on African literature in European languages. Koffi Anyinefa focuses his attention on the literary production of one country, the Congolese Republic, formerly Popular Republic of Congo, which is presented as a case study. But it is always made clear that the insights gained from the critical analysis of Congolese literary texts are also valid for many other African countries and literatures.

Anyinefa distinguishes texts according to structural and thematic categories: novels that focus on ideological issues, on political structures, and the personal styles of leadership - novels of dictatorship. Thus, the realities of political problems and governance are viewed in relation to the intellectual responses and the mimetic treatment of these realities by the writers. Politics and literary production are seen as a process of mutual interdependance.



"...a good book - serious, well-documented , filled with informative details, well-written, based on a solid set of references - a book that deserves to be read." - Roger Chemain in Research in African Literature (RAL) (1993)
