Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Distinguished scholar V. Y. Mudimbe assembles a lively tribute to "Presence Africaine," the landmark African studies journal begun in 1947 Paris. While it celebrates the project's forty-year history, "The Surreptitious Speech" does not naively canonize the journal but rather offers a vibrant discussion and critical reading of its context, characteristics, and significance.
