Angola book launch and reception poster.

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.

Fragments of a manuscript containing rare translations of Old French courtly love poems into Old Norse prose were discovered as linings in a bishop’s mitre, and just as remarkably about three-quarters of the original manuscript miraculously survives in the University Library in Uppsala.  Our link is to a blog post from two years ago by Erik Kwakkel, but the fragments were also featured with new photographs in Manuscripts from the Arnamagnaean Collection (2015), a recent arrival in Green Library.
