Africa Dances. A book about West African dances.


Here is an extraordinary book that is of extreme interest from two totally different aspects.On the one hand the author relates a series of marvels that exceed almost anything that has been reported in traveller’s tales of many years past;on the other he brings an indictment of French colonial policy in West Africa that can scarcely be paralleled without going back to the charges made against the administration of Leopold in the Belgian Congo…the verdict that he has written one of the most remarkable travel books of our times is unescapable.
