African Content Published by Taylor & Francis
As the only international academic publisher with an editorial team on the continent, Taylor & Francis Africa is embedded in the local and regional environment. This puts us in a strong position to work closely with key institutions, learned societies, and government stakeholders to enable the creation and dissemination of African research in the global arena.
Our range of African Studies books includes titles on subject areas such as Business, Economics, Education, Politics, History, Health, and Literature. A selection of our African Studies book content is available Open Access, and therefore is freely available to read online.
