Special Notice

Suggest a gift book or CD for the Holidays!

The Africa Policy Information Center (APIC) is launching a new room in our web bookshop - just in time for holiday shopping! But we need your input and help in doing so. We need your suggestions for your favorite books on Africa and recommendations of African music CDs that you would personally send as gifts.

Your suggestions will appear in a new bookshop special in early December. When visitors to the site select your suggestion(s) and order a book or CD from the on-line bookshop through our site, APIC will receive a 15% referral commission.

And keep APIC in mind for your own on-line shopping for gifts or for your own use. If you purchase books or CDs through APIC's web site (, you can search from our site. Amazon's entire selection is just a click away, and any book or CD that you order will generate a 5% referral commission for APIC.

Won't you make a suggestion for our special holiday section? Please complete the form below and send it to rather than the general APIC e-mail address. You may submit as many recommendations as you wish. To do so, please be sure to fill in the form as completely as possible for each item, including a one-or-two sentence description of the book or CD and a brief identification of who you are.

(Special note to publishers: Any books received as review copies will be listed in the bookshop. Selected books will also be annotated with short comments and listed in appropriate topical sections.)


To make a book or CD suggestion, just put this form in an e-mail to (cut and paste the form into a new message, or use your reply function, substitute the address and delete the text above to leave only this form) and fill in the blanks.
