About the Author:

Roland Oliver was born in 1923 in Srinagar, Kashmir, and was educated at Cambridge. He has authored and coauthored a number of books, including The Missionary Factor in East Africa. He is currently emeritus professor of African history at the University of London.

From AudioFile:

This short work encompasses the history of the entire continent of Africa from the Paleolithic era to the late 1980's. Dividing the continent into four geographical and political areas, Oliver and Fage examine the history of the people, their conquests and experience of being conquered. Geoffrey Howard delivers a flawless narration, twisting his tongue around, not only the native African words and places, but also the multitude of European languages. Howard's reading is slow enough for the listener to contemplate the issues and events, yet fluid enough to entice the listener to learn what happens next. M.B.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
