The roles and needs of African women have been largely neglected in Third World policy-making by governments and international organizations despite the existence of recent research providing the basis and justification for new policies. This work, the first volume of a three-part bibliography, makes that research available to researchers and policy-makers. Focusing on works with a broad application, it provides comprehensive listings of resources relating to the situation of women in Africa. The bibliography is divided into 32 subject categories covering topics ranging from marriage and family issues to work, legal rights, politics, the arts, and urban life. Devoted to original English-language research works, it includes journal articles, book chapters, theses and dissertation, conference papers, and individual books on women in Africa and the Third World. Useful supplementary listings are supplied in appendices. A significant contribution to African studies and the social sciences, African Women will help focus attention on the considerable body of research findings on this topic. Appropriate for reference collection in African studies, Third World studies, anthropology, sociology, political economy, and a variety of other fields.
