One of 27 in the Time-Life series, and not initially planned for the series until van der Post declined to write the book on Russia and suggested he write one on “Africa”. The first book I discovered that treated Africa as having “cuisines,” even though it was heavily weighted towards colonial Africa. The West African section particularly inspired me and gave me the first clue to Barbara Baëta’s influence.
