520    Diasporic Africa presents the most recent research on the 
       history and experiences of people of African descent 
       outside of the African continent. By incorporating Europe 
       and North Africa as well as North America, Latin America, 
       and the Caribbean, this reader shifts the discourse on the
       African diaspora away from its focus solely on the 
       Americas, underscoring the fact that much of the movement 
       of people of African descent took place in Old World 
       contexts. This broader view allows for a more 
       comprehensive approach to the study of the African 
       diaspora. The volume provides an overview of African 
       diaspora studies and features as a major concern a 
       rigorous interrogation of "identity." Other primary themes
       include contributions to western civilization, from 
       religion, music, and sports to agricultural production and
       medicine, as well as the way in which our understanding of
       the African diaspora fits into larger studies of 
       transnational phenomena
