Intonations tells the story of how Angola's urban residents in the late colonial period (roughly 1945-74) used music to talk back to their colonial oppressors and, more importantly, to define what it meant to be Angolan and what they hoped to gain...
Recensioner i media
"Marissa Moorman's new book aptly captures the multiple dimensions of the enduring power of radio in mediating different historical moments in Angola. It is an excellent book that draws on multiple texts to narrate the role of radio both in Angola's independence struggle and in the post-war of era of nation building." -- Dumisani Moyo, author of Radio in Africa: Publics, Cultures, Communities "Moorman's incisive study argues that the medium of radio is central to the history of human actors, political movements, wars, as well as the struggle for and the exercise of power in southern Africa. Yet radio has not heretofore been an object of systematic analysis in connection to Angola. Following her groundbreaking Intonations, Moorman once again proves herself to be one of the leading scholars on this key southern African nation." -- Fernando Arenas, author of Lusophone Africa: Beyond Independence "This is an outstanding book. Moorman, already the author of a superb and influential social history of Angolan music, writes the definitive work on Angolan radio during the colonial and post-independence periods. It not only unearths new knowledge about Angolan history, but places Angolan developments in the wider canvas of the Cold war. That Moorman has achieved this through a book that is elegantly written and compellingly argued are but two of its many qualities. This will be a must read not only to those focused on modern Africa, but to anyone interested in the workings of state propaganda and the global Cold War." -- Ricardo Soares de Oliveira, University of Oxford
