Editorial Reviews

Review

"The clear writing and strong narrative drive in this text will be attractive to instructors looking for a one volume history of Africa that students will read. Supplemented with other texts, it will work well in the classroom as it gives a solid academic presentation of key issues and themes in African history, such as the slave trade and slavery over the long term. This history will also appeal to a more general audience, as it offers them a lively discussion of African geography and environment, a history that includes named individuals and politics, and a clear narrative. Substantive issues are treated in a clear way that will engage students and a wider audience." - James Searing, University of Illinois, Chicago

Book Description

An accessible introduction to sub-Saharan history for students and general readers. The authors describe the rise of empires in the classical period, the slave trade, and the European conquest. The concluding section focuses on twentieth century Africa as it gains independence and searches for a new identity beyond colonialism.

I was happy to receive this package for class. It had some wear and tear on the cover, but for the price, I could not complain. I guess you can say it's had some good use!

Excellent product - but my provider sent a book is very sub-standard condition.

Overall a great book but I will not use that provider again. Excellent resource book for anyone studing Sub-Saharan Africa and great maps.
