Analyse the interaction between minority and majority and minority and territory is the main focus of the edited book Cities and minorities in Africa. It tries to illustrate specific aspects of the relationship that some African minorities have established with six particular places, some of them being main cities of the continent. The book chapters are very different in scope, topics, places and time, highlighting the great interest and importance of the subject touching various aspects of life, history and development of the continent itself. Cities and minorities in Africa tries to show how the city becomes a major stage of social, economic and political dynamics. Special reference should be given to the last section of the book, which has been dedicated to the work of an African young researcher.
