The Changing Worlds of Atlantic Africa:
Essays in Honor of Robin Law
edited by Toyin Falola and Matt D. Childs
Robin Law represents the best of the generation that emerged during one of the most eventful and exciting periods in African history and historiography. This book offers an assessment of his scholarship, most notably his work on pre-colonial West African history; his methodological approaches to African history; his scholarship on transatlantic slavery in particular; and his work on diasporic topics and the study of changing identities produced by Atlantic slavery. The Changing Worlds of Atlantic Africa, comprising the writings of a remarkable cast of scholars who occupy the leading role in their areas of specialization, is a vivid example of the ongoing dialogue with the "waves" of scholarship stimulated by the work of Robin Law.
