The Basler Afrika Bibliographien Publishing House has been publishing scholarly works on southern
Africa, especially Namibia, since 1971. Its thematic emphases are
oriented towards the humanities and social sciences. The BAB Publishing
House seeks to promote cultural exchange and engagement regarding
important contemporary historical issues and, in particular, to provide
African scholars with a platform. Their (cultural-) historical, political
and anthropological publications are aimed at international academic
audiences as well as engaged readers broadly interested in Africa.
