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
