Overview

Experience Africa's vibrant and volatile struggle at the crossroads between tradition and modernity . . .

INTO THE HOUSE OF THE ANCESTORS

Rich . . . fascinating. --The New York Times Book Review

A master of eyewitness description and of the telling interview, [Maier] has unearthed Africa's hidden heroes and heroines. --Financial Times

Maier has written a sensitive and complex narrative. . . . excellent descriptions of the lives and experiences of both ordinary and extraordinary individuals in different parts of Africa. --Richard Leakey, The Times (London)

A remarkable book. . . . It is no easy task to articulate an intangible undercurrent in an area so geographically large and culturally diverse, but Maier has succeeded admirably. Maier gives us hope that [the Africans] can rebound and even thrive. Highly recommended. --Library Journal
