Book Description

This edition of Patrick Manning's established text includes two new chapters that discuss developments in the region since 1985, emphasising the democratisation movements of the 1980s and 1990s, the Francophone movement, and the crises in Rwanda and Burundi. Focusing on the French-speaking countries of west and central Africa, the book brings out the way in which the precolonial African heritage shaped new societies, in interaction with French and Belgian colonial rules, and with global economic and cultural forces. Three eras of change are described: the transition to colonial rule from 1880 to 1940, the transition to independent states from 1940 to 1985, and the reconfiguration of post-colonial society after 1985. The first edition of this book has been widely used in courses in African studies and African history.

3.0 out of 5 stars A study of western influence on large sections of Africa. September 23, 1999
Format:Paperback
This book provides a detailed history of the influences of western society on sub-saharan African culture. The reader should be aware that this is a "history textbook" long on facts and at times dull. However, if one perseveres many gems of information can be gleamed from the book's pages. This is not a quick read and requires some effort to finish and absorb all the detail. It would be great for the novice scholar or student. If you are looking for a text to give a brief and concise overview of the subject look elsewhere. The book lacks the necessary maps, figures, charts etc... to retain this readers interest for more than brief reading sessions.
