9780199796397: Colonial Africa: 1884-1994 (African World Histories)

Colonial Africa, 1884-1994, presents a balanced, accessible, and comprehensive overview of how Africans experienced European colonial rule. This brief and affordable text is organized in a "layered" approach that gives students a deeper insight into the ways in which Africans experienced colonialism and looks at how they understood the world in which they lived during this period. The book provides both a continental overview and specific regional examples, exploring the period in a thematic and chronological way. Each chapter ends with a short list of works cited and suggestions for further reading. Colonial Africa, 1884-1994, concludes with contemplations on the legacy of colonialism by Africans themselves, ranging from Nigerian musician Fela to the Kenyan environmentalist Wangari Muta Maathai.

The author of the forthcoming Remembering the Germans in Ghana and other publications on West African history, Laumann received his doctorate from UCLA in 1999.

Review:


"This is a perfect text to introduce undergraduate students to the history of European colonialism in Africa. It combines topical breadth with lucid analysis, well informed by recent scholarship."--Maxim Matusevich, Seton Hall University


"I found Colonial Africa to be very well-thought and executed. Its main strength is that it presents the topic of colonialism both as a historical event to be examined, and as a historiographical debate that has occupied historians for quite some time. It offers a solid and accessible introduction to the history and historiography of colonialism in Africa."--Esperanza Brizuela-Garcia, Montclair State University
