An unsolicited assessment

An unsolicited assessment: 

English in Africa evinces a consistency in policy and content, and therefore, a clearer identity, than any of the other journals under review, all the more remarkable considering its 30-year lifespan and the numerous editors who have presided over policy - - - None of the other journals - - - can match the persistent and pervasive attention paid to Southern African literary production by this journal - - - In terms of criticism, EA can justifiably be characterised as the most Afro-centric of the 11 journals under review - - - a journal whose identity has been remarkably strong and uniquely consistent.”
