Abstract

Book Review African Pottery Roulettes, Past and Present: Techniques, Identification and Distribution. By Anne Haour, Katie Manning, Noemie Arazi, Olivier Gosselain, Ndèye Sokhna Guèye, Daouda Keita, Alexandre Livingstone Smith, Kevin MacDonald, Anne Mayor, Susan McIntosh & Robert Vernet (eds.). Oxbow Books, Oxford, 2010, xii + 196 pp. ISBN 978-1-84217-968-0. £ 25.00 (Paperback). While I wonder whether this book has been literally edited throughout by eleven scholars, it is certainly a team effort -- and a remarkably coordinated one -- following a series of focussed workshops held in Oxford, Dakar and London. There are hints that the responsibility for organising the project and its publication has rested principally with Anne Haour and Katie Manning; but it is also evident from the joint authorships of two of the three sections, as well as the important introduction (by Olivier Gosselain among others), that every one of those named has played a real part.
