About the book

What is Africa? Whence it came? In Africa: The Continent we Construct, Bhaso Ndzendze voices how blatantly subjective interpretations of objective phenomena, essentially self-referential geopolitical understandings and historical presuppositions and assumptions have been used as bases upon which to construct the idea of 'Africa'. In a range of interlocking, far-reaching and in-depth analyses, the author dwells on the real-world effects of this insulation of Africa, some of which may have come to greatly halt our economic and social progress, diminish the value of the individual and distort the process of historical pedagogy. While carrying out the task of addressing these issues, and the anxieties they inevitably conjure up, the book's underlying narrative hymns the importance of critical thinking as well a pragmatic approach to heritage and social engineering.
