"Manthia Diawara is quite simply the best critic (in any language) currently writing on African cinema." --Robert Stam

"Diawara has produced a useful history, a cogent analysis, and, in his arguments on how African cinema should develop, an undoubtedly controversial book." --Studies in Popular Culture

"This is a good, solid and reliable history of filmmaking on the African continent, beginning with colonial production and moving on to independent filmmaking . . . an important and welcome reference source." --Classic Images

"Diawara's work is comprehensive, based on rigorous research and sound analyses . . . it aptly illustrates the intricate correlations between politics, economics and culture." --Black Film Review

"In a relatively new field of historical 'film theory', African Cinema: Politics and Culture will become indispensable." --The Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory, Vol. 1-3, 1996
