Through the lens of
the automobile, Lindsey B. Green-Simms considers the pleasures, dangers, and
limits of global modernity in West Africa. With readings of famous plays,
novels, and films and recent popular videos, she reveals how automobility in
the region is an everyday practice, an ethos, a fantasy of autonomy, and an
affective activity intimately tied to modern social life.
