African Arguments is a series of short books about contemporary Africa and the critical issues and debates surrounding the continent. The books are scholarly and engaged, substantive and topical. The series is owned by the International African Institute and published in association with the Royal African Society, and the World Peace Foundation at Tufts University. In 2005–20, more than 30 books were published in the series, on topics including questions of justice, rights and citizenship; politics, protests and revolutions; the environment, land, oil and other resources; health and disease; economy: growth, aid, taxation, debt and capital flight; and both Africa’s international relations and country case studies.
From 2021 the series is published by Hurst, with titles co-published or distributed in North America by Oxford University Press. Where possible, co-editions with African publishers will also be arranged.
