I selected the ten books on this Ferris wheel among Africa bestsellers at Amazon.com. For Amazon's latest Africa list, updated hourly, click here

This set includes a few classic books I highly recommend, as well as a few on my "to read sometime" list. And, just for variety, a CD of songs by Oliver Mtukudzi.

For a selection of books on Guinea (Conakry), I first chose two books by historian Elizabeth Schmidt reflecting new research and a "bottom-up" perspective on the history of nationalism in that country. Then I asked her to suggest some additional books. The result, with a classic audio CD thrown in for good measure ("Authenticité"), is shown above.
