First out is Cristina Udelsmann Rodrigues, a social anthropologist from Angola and Portugal. She has picked Rogue Urbanism: Emergent African Cities, by Edgar Pieterse and AbdouMaliq Simone, African Centre for Cities, University of Cape Town (2013).
“This book – which has great photos – provides new theoretical and practical tools for urban analysis. It shows the constellations of perspectives and logics that need to be combined to truly improve knowledge about African cities.”
