AFRICAN KINGS: Portrait of a Disappearing Era, Daniel Laine

There are close to 100 tribal kings in Africa today -- their ancient traditions preserved, their wisdom and power still honored. A portal into these worlds of mysterious rites, ancient customs, and fantastic finery, this book takes us into the inner circle of 70 of these tribes in the person of their king. Formal portraits of each king in full regalia are accompanied by brief biographies and historical notes on the tribe and the rituals and history associated with each ruler. African Kings introduces us to a way of life with anthropological roots as deep as any on earth.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF AFRICA, David Cohen, Lee Liberman

This epic collection is a one-day digital snapshot of the entire African continent. One hundred of the world's top photojournalists, including James Nachtwey and Sebastio Salgado, trek to 53 nations shooting 250 striking images from Cairo to the Cape of Good Hope. Photographs ranging from Namibia's San bushmen to the hip Lagos music scene capture a rich tapestry of African life lived on a single day. All publishing profits from the book are being used to fund AIDS education programs in Africa.

The photographs represent 20 trips to Africa over a span of 20 years. Gilders's five essays accompany Wolfe's photographs and address the pressing need to protect the diversity of each ecosystem.
