Macro-level study of the South Atlantic throughout the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries demonstrating how Brazil’s emergence was built on the longest and most intense slave trade of the modern era. The seventeenth-century missionary and diplomat Father Antônio Vieira once observed that Brazil was nourished, animated, sustained, served, and conserved by the “sad blood” of the “black and unfortunate souls” imported from Angola. In The Trade in the Living, Luiz Felipe de Alencastro demonstrates how the African slave trade was an essential element in the South Atlantic and in the ongoing cohesion of Portuguese America, while at the same time the concrete interests of Brazilian colonists, dependent on Angolan slaves, were often violently asserted in Africa, to ensure men and commodities continued to move back and forth across the Atlantic. In exposing this intricate and complementary relationship between two non-European continents, de Alencastro has fashioned a new and challenging examination of colonial Brazil, one that moves beyond its relationship with Portugal to discover a darker, hidden history.

This book examines the impact of post-colonial leadership on political integration in Nigeria, offering an in-depth understanding of the historical and contemporary forces that shape Nigeria's national politics as well as African politics generally. Okafor discusses how Nigeria's pre-colonial and colonial political histories along with contemporary external forces like neo-colonialism, as well as internal social, economic and political structures and developments, have affected emerging post-independence politics in the country. The study climaxes with an Africa-centered theory of political and integrative leadership and then uses it as a prism for analyzing six Nigerian post-independence political leaderships, encompassing Nigeria's First and Second Republics, along with their military interregna. The concluding chapter includes a discussion of the implications of the study for leadership and political integration in Africa in general.

Growing interest in reparations for African Americans has prompted a range of responses, from lawsuits against major corporations and a march in Washington to an anti-reparations ad campaign. As a result, the link between slavery and contemporary race relations is more potent and obvious than ever. Grassroots organizers, lawmakers, and distinguished academics have embraced the idea that reparations should be pursued vigorously in the courts and legislature. But others ask, Who should pay? And could reparations help heal the wounds of the past? This comprehensive collection -- the only of its kind -- gathers together the seminal essays and key participants in the debate. Pro-reparations essays, including contributions by Congressman John Conyers Jr., Christopher Hitchens, and Professor Molefi Asante, are countered with arguments by Shelby Steele, Armstrong Williams, and John McWhorter, among others. Also featured are important documents, such as the First Congressional Reparations Bill of 1867 and the Dakar Declaration of 2001, as well as a new chapter on the current status and future direction of the movement.

Abundant life. Who doesn't want to live life to the fullest? Jesus offers us life to the fullest, but few of us feel we have attained it. Jesus calls us to be in the world, but not of it, because we have been made citizens of God's Kingdom. Too often, however, we get too drawn into the world's ways. Often our culture can enslave us. Cultural Enslavement: Breaking Free into Abundant Living takes a look at ways we become captives of our culture as well as ways to break free of them. Abundant living is Christ's desire for all who follow Him. Discover how to throw off the shackles that hold you back and how to experience life more fully.

Molefi Kete Asante′s Afrocentric philosophy has become one of the most persistent influences in the social sciences and humanities over the past three decades. It strives to create new forms of discourse about Africa and the African Diaspora, impact on education through expanding curricula to be more inclusive, change the language of social institutions to reflect a more holistic universe, and revitalize conversations in Africa, Europe, and America, about an African renaissance based on commitment to fundamental ideas of agency, centeredness, and cultural location. In An Afrocentric Manifesto, Molefi Kete Asante examines and explores the cultural perspective closest to the existential reality of African people in order to present an innovative interpretation on the modern issues confronting contemporary society. Thus, this book engages the major critiques of Afrocentricity, defends the necessity for African people to view themselves as agents instead of as objects on the fringes of Europe, and proposes a more democratic framework for human relationships. An Afrocentric Manifesto completes Asante′s quartet on Afrocentric theory. It is at the cutting edge of this new paradigm with implications for all disciplines and fields of study. It will be essential reading for urban studies, philosophy, African and African American Studies, social work, sociology, political science, and communication.

Every living thing is assembled by its genes. This is a crucial starting point for exploring a fundamental human dilemma. As stated so starkly by Richard Dawkins, a human is "a lumbering machine, created for the task of safeguarding and propagating the all-important genes within." I would add that since the machine's behavior is driven by brain circuits pre-wired by those genes, sometimes we are prone to doing things which work against our individual best interest in order to advance the cause of the genes. In other words, some of our genes are our enemies ("outlaw genes") because they jeopardize individual well¬being as they work to assure themselves genetic immortality. Every thinking person must face the following dilemma: "How can I achieve liberation from genetic pitfalls when my values and thinking are so profoundly influenced by the very same genes that have created those pitfalls?" The more one tries to answer this question the harder it is to imagine that an answer is possible. Nevertheless, this is a challenge that can become irresistibly fascinating. This book is an attempt to bravely explore one of Humanity's most profound existential dilemmas. The fate of a civilization is also affected by the "outlaw genes," especially those responsible for a feeling of discontent with civilization and a vague preference for a simpler society, which I would describe as resembling those found in the human ancestral environment. This book explores how a flawed human nature undermines every civilization, starting a decline and eventual fall. Those of us born during the 20th Century are lucky for having seen the best of times for our civilization, and as a questionable bonus we may now witness from close-up the forces that have condemned every past civilization to ruin.

Many people are active Bible readers, reading a chapter or more every day, yet it can be difficult to understand how individual passages relate to the entire biblical story. James Chatham, a beloved minister and Bible teacher, has spent decades introducing people from all walks of life to the panorama of the biblical story from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21. In this readable yet meaty volume, he takes readers into the familiar yet fascinating story of God's gracious action in the world. From Abraham and the children of Israel to Jesus and his apostles, Chatham brings fresh insights to this old, old story. Rejecting our unhelpful tendency to take verses out of context, Chatham encourages instead the ancient, biblical practice of consulting “the whole counsel of God.” Sprinkled throughout with interesting sidebars and including a helpful “Chronology of the Bible's Story,” the book is broken up into twenty-six easy-to-use segments and enhanced by carefully designed discussion questions. While not a substitute for careful Bible reading, Chatham's Creation to Revelation will deepen readers' understanding of how the Bible's many pieces fit into the whole.

What is Freedom? When is limited Freedom adequate for human satisfaction? It cannot be rationed by those that hate the oppressed. The Constitution is the fundamental document upon which every soul that treads the dirt and pavement of the United States and its territorial possessions walk. This document stretches to length and breadth of the territory where its citizens live and praises the Lord. It provides rights that are not retrievable by the common citizen who desires to control those that are less fortunate than the few. The laws of protection defends against any form of slippage or deviance has the full impact of what freedom brings, from the great Document of Freedom, which is the Constitution of the United States and the Amendments thereof. Since the Nation became the Land of the Free, and since the Reconstruction after the war between the states brought a freedom that has been challenged by those that feel that they are the sole owners or recipients of such freedom, the record has to be set straight. The perpetrators and victims now must enjoy the same degree of freedom. Justice demands equality for all citizens, even if the former slave owners have refused to yield to the laws of the Land that guarantees the rights to all citizens. They have attempted to slice some of the rights from the Constitution in the name of States Rights. Since the time we elected Barak Obama as President, they have attempted to put more pressure on the system in terms of identification at the voting booths. We are proposing that in every state the question should be asked, what are the voting requirements? Once we receive the requirements we should mobilize our churches to assist in the follow-thru ensuring that the voting process is effectuated. We should ask the federal authorities to provide some oversight in some cases.
