The informal business sector is the next great frontier of Africa and it is undergoing an economic revolution, a new world of small people doing big things, transforming the continent. Prepare for this new generation, prepare for the Afripolitan Generation. A revolution is taking place in the great marketplaces of the informal sector and it contains an unquantified scale and power as an economic engine and a way of life for the majority of our low income populations. The KasiNomic Revolution may still be a murmur in the streets, a grassroots economic groundswell, but it is the future of African economic activity. Kasi is the South African term for the township, a teeming conurbation of homes and businesses, entertainment venues and social meeting places. GG Alcock uses the term KasiNomics to describe the informal sectors of Africa, whether they are in the township, a rural marketplace, at a taxi rank or on a pavement in the shadow of skyscrapers. Brought up in a rural Zulu community, GG has learnt and shares the lessons of African culture, language, stick fighting, lifestyle and tribal politics, along with shared poverty and community, which have prepared him for accessing the great informal marketplaces of Africa. He is uniquely placed to uncover the extraordinary stories of kasi businesses which not only survive but excel, revealing a revolutionary entrepreneurship which is mostly invisible to the formal sector. KasiNomic Revolution is a story of kasi entrepreneurs on one side and, on the other, of great corporate successes and failures in the informal community. KasiNomic Revolution is at once a business book, and at the same time a deeply human book about the people and lives of rural and urban informal societies. KasiNomic Revolution is about the lessons of marketing, distribution, culture and modernity in an informal African world. Prepare for a KasiNomic Revolution.

What do you do when profound thoughts stealthily tip-toe across the backyard of your mind? You capture them, refine them, and make them your own. The philosophical accretions of these thoughts are what Dr. Inno Onwueme now shares with you in this intellectually stimulating book. Using erudite essays, poems, and aphorisms, he explores a wide range of burning topical topics, including the philosophical (e.g. Silence has spoken), religious (Death, orgasm, and God), sociological (The civil union debate), environmental (Affluenza), cultural (Mother-tongue needs mothering), political (Anioma identity), war/peace, and even the humorous. And then there’s the incendiary nine-part epic poem, Unasked questions driving the American ethos, which is seismic, sarcastic, and sure to provoke. Revel in this rich universe of radical thought, as Questions Not Being Asked pushes you to find new ways of asking questions that you’ve never before asked, while finding new answers to ancient questions. Grab this opportunity to take your philosophical thinking on everyday topics to a higher plane. You’ll then be ready to ask Questions Not Being Asked.

The Peacock Revolution in menswear of the 1960s came as a profound shock to much of America. Men's long hair and vividly colored, sexualized clothes challenged long established traditions of masculine identity. Peacock Revolution is an in-depth study of how radical changes in men's clothing reflected, and contributed to, the changing ideas of American manhood initiated by a 'youthquake' of rebellious baby boomers coming of age in an era of social revolutions. Featuring a detailed examination of the diverse socio-cultural and socio-political movements of the era, the book examines how those dissents and advocacies influenced the youthquake generation's choices in dress and ideas of masculinity. Daniel Delis Hill provides a thorough chronicle of the peacock fashions of the time, beginning with the mod looks of the British Invasion in the early 1960s, through the counterculture street styles and the mass-market trends they inspired, and concluding with the dress-for-success menswear revivals of the 1970s Me-Decade.

Hair Relaxers Science, Design, and Application By: Patrick Obukowho The ethnic hair market is one that is growing exponentially almost strictly on the demand of consumers, as opposed to the usual run of what business’s determine to be “necessary” new product launches. For that reason alone, hair relaxers, a large segment of the ethnic hair market, are big business in and of themselves. This segment is demanding better, more usable products, ones that have fewer harsh side-effects and better long-term results, including improved conditioning properties, hair strength retention, and ease of use. Drawing on his more than two decades of hands-on experience in hair relaxer technology and formulative development, Patrick Obukowho has crafted a well-defined, comprehensive, and quite readable guide to understanding and applying the chemistry of hair relaxers to practical and dynamic formulating. Hair Relaxers: Science, Design, and Application investigates the history of relaxer technology and its present development and application in the following topics: • Hair, Ethnic Hair, and Hair Relaxer Chemistry • History and Evolution of Hair Relaxers • Emulsion Design and Perfecting Emulsions • Ingredients and Their Role in Relaxer Formulations • Post-treatment Products and Alternative Straightening Methods • And more!
