The Context and Politics of African Philanthropy. Tade Akin Aina & Bhekinkosi Moyo (Eds.)
In the past decade, the emerging narratives about philanthropy in Africa are about an increasingly confident and knowledgeable assertion of African capacities to give not only to help but also to transform and seek to address the root causes of injustice, want, ignorance and disease. The narratives are also about the questioning of the role and place of Africans in the world’s philanthropic traditions and what constitutes African specificities but also African differences and varieties.

Giving to Help, Helping to Give deftly explores African philanthropic experiences, challenges and opportunities. It is about documenting, investigating, describing, analysing and reflecting on philanthropy in Africa. This groundbreaking
book rightly tackles the varied modes, forms, vehicles and means in which philanthropy is expressed in multifaceted Africa.

It is a pioneering and ambitious effort in a field and community of practice that is new both in terms of scholarship and in professional practice. Many of the chapters boldly engage the burden of reflections, questions, ambivalences and ambiguities that one often finds in an emerging field, innovatively positing the outlines, concepts, frameworks and theories of scholarship and practice for a field critical to development on the continent.
