Series:

Austin Ahanotu

The history of religions in contemporary Africa is not just history. It is, in fact, political history. This theme of the religious metaphor in the engagement of power relations is impressively illuminated in this thoroughly researched collection of essays on religion, state and society in contemporary Africa.
