The Lembani Trust

Its hard getting hold of good Zambian titles especially for those living outside Zambia. Which is why the Lembani Trust is a fantastic development. Led by British, European and Zambian scholars, The Lembani Trust seeks to publish Zambian academics who have limited access to academic outlets, while also increasing the availability of scholarly writing about Africa, in Africa. I am told by those close to the project, more titles will be available soon. It looks like we will have wonderful material for our regular book reviews.

  1. Very interesting link. But the prices on some titles are out of this world! I understand economies of scale may be at play, probably due to the fact that African writers don't get the exposure their talent deserves, however I for one would need a lot of convincing (never mind the money), to buy those good but very pricy titles.
