Studying Africa: a Guide to Resources 2014. The Nordic Africa Institute compiled this up-to-date guide. Each of the editions covers the subsequent scholarship and resources since the prior edition.  The 2005 edition covered older literature, the 2011 edition covered resources produced or updated between 2004 and 2010, and the third updates it to 2014.
