?Entries include the correct pronunciation, the definition as the word has come to be used in English, the African derivation, and references to usage in both Western and African publications. . . . This is a most welcome reference tool that will prove useful on two levels. First, it fills a scholarly need. Collections that emphasize African linguistics will find it of considerable interest. More important, however, is its reference value for collections that emphasize Pan-Africanism and Afro-Americana. . . . Many of the references to usage come from publications that will be generally available in many collections, including newspapers, journals, and popular novels. Both academic and public libraries.?-Choice
