520 8  Civil wars, corporate exploitation, AIDS, and Ebola but 
       also democracy, burgeoning cities, and unprecedented 
       communication and mobility: the future of Africa has never
       been more uncertain. Indeed, that future is one of the 
       most complex issues in contemporary anthropology, as 
       evidenced by the incredible wealth of ideas offered in 
       this landmark volume. A consortium comprised of some of 
       the most important scholars of Africa today, this book 
       surveys an intellectual landscape of opposed perspectives 
       in order to think within the contradictions that 
       characterize this central question: Where is Africa 
       headed? The experts in this book address Africa's future 
       as it is embedded within various social and cultural forms
       emerging on the continent today: the reconfiguration of 
       the urban, the efflorescence of signs and wonders and 
       gospels of prosperity, the assorted techniques of legality
       and illegality, lotteries and Ponzi schemes, apocalyptic 
       visions, a yearning for exile, and many other phenomena. 
       Bringing together social, political, religious, and 
       economic viewpoints, the book reveals not one but multiple
       prospects for the future of Africa. In doing so, it offers
       a pathbreaking model of pluralistic and open-ended 
       thinking and a powerful tool for addressing the vexing 
       uncertainties that underlie so many futures around the
