Irene Isoken Agunloye, Professor of African Drama, Gender, Women & Film Studies; Director of the Centre for Gender & Women’s Studies, University of Jos, Jos, Nigeria ‘Nollywood in Glocal Perspective is a compendium on film and cinema in contemporary Africa as well as a contribution to the emergent New World Entertainment Order and its diverse cultural centres. As in Los Angeles, New York City, Sydney, London, Paris or Johannesburg, there is a new (global) market for entertainment and pop culture from the African continent – Nollywood, Ghallywood, Riverwood or Bongowood — with abundance of creative energy and feeder-talents. Like its themes and genre, the writing style is entertaining, insightful and illuminatingly gender sensitive. Nollywood in Glocal Perspective should serve as a companion to students of film, Cinema, song and dance.
