Book Launch & Reception for two new books related to Angola:
National Liberation in Post-Colonial Southern Africa by Christian Williams and
Political Identity and Conflict in Central Angola by Justin Pearce
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Stanford University Center for African Studies and the Four Decades of Angolan Independence Geballe Workshop, Stanford University Libraries is hosting a book launch of two new books: one on politcal history in central Angola from 1975-2002; and the other, an ethnography of members of the Namibian liberation movement, SWAPO (South West African People's Organization), many of whom were exiles in Angola, Zambia and Tanzania during the liberation struggles in Southern Africa.
The authors of these two books will give brief introductions of their work and sign bookplates. The Stanford University Bookstore will be on hand to take book orders.
This event is open to the public and takes place on Monday, November 16th, 2015 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm in Green Library, 5th floor, Bender Room.
