X-Posted from H-Net Discussion List on Portuguese-speaking African Countries <H-LUSO-AFRICA@H-NET.MSU.EDU> From: "Ball, Jeremy" <ballj@DICKINSON.EDU> _________ REPLY 1 From: Eric Morier-Genoud email@example.com Date: 10 May 2010 Dear Daniella Mak, If you have not looked at it yet, check the work of Inge Brinkman who wrote extensively on your topic in Southern Angola. Her most relevant works are: - _Singing in the bush : MPLA songs during the war for independence in south-east Angola (1966-1975)_, Köln: Köppe, 2001. - _Grandmother's footsteps : oral tradition and south-east Angolan narratives on the colonial encounter_, Köln: Köppe, 1999. For articles, see her list of publications on her webpage: http://www.ascleiden.nl/GetPage.aspx?url=/publications/ibrinkman As to Kongo nationalism, I am sure others will have a better knowledge than I do. But may I draw your attention to works in French, in particular those from Rene Pelissier (2 books: _Les guerres grises. Résistances et révoltes en Angola (1845-1941)_, and _La colonie du Minotaure. Nationalismes et révoltes en Angola (1926-1961)_) as well as from Christine Messiant (3 books: _1961: L'Angola Colonial, Histoire et Societe : Les Premisses Du Mouvement Nationaliste_, and _L' Angola Postcolonial_, 2 vol).
