"Postcolonial African Cinema "constitutes a new departure in African film studies. Recognizing the maturity of the field and the need for complex yet accessible approaches that move beyond the purely descriptive while refusing to get bogged down in theoretical jargon. This is the first introduction of its kind to an important cross-section of postcolonial African filmmakers from the 1950s to the present. Building on previous critical work in the field, this volume brings together ideas from a range of disciplines to combine the in-depth analysis of individual films and bodies of work by individual directors. Chapters provide an overview of the director's output to date and the necessary background to give a better understanding of the director's choice of subject matter, aesthetic or formal strategies, and ideological stance.

Patrick Williams, Ed.D., a pioneer of the coaching profession, began executive coaching in 1990. In 1998 he founded the Institute for Life Coach Training, an ICF Accredited Coach Training Program. He speaks worldwide on living purposefully, coaching for global change, wellness coaching, and the coach approach in leadership. He has written dozens of articles and taken part in numerous television and radio interviews. He is also the author of Becoming a Professional Life Coach: Lessons from the Institute for Life Coach Training and Total Life Coaching: 50+ Life Lessons, Skills, and Techniques to Enhance Your Practice... and Your Life.
