Now fully revised and updated, this classic text offers an illustrated and critical narrative introduction to the history of Africa from earliest times to the present. Beginning with the evolution of mankind itself, the book traces the history of Africa through the millennia of the ancient world to the centuries of medieval and modern Africa. The clear and simple language and the wealth of carefully chosen maps and photos combine to make an essential and accessible text.

About the Author:

Kevin Shillington is currently based in London and works as a freelance historian. He holds an MA and PhD in African History from the University of London and his publications include Jugnauth: Prime Minister of Mauritius (1991) and Ghana and the Rawlings Factor (1992).

From Library Journal:

This work is written from an African perspective e.g., "Alexander of Macedon (known in European history as Alexander the Great)" and is geared to secondary students (it comes complete with questions). It attempts to emphasize developments affecting the lives of "ordinary" people, from the beginning evolution of humankind up to the present, although post-independence Africa receives but 18 pages (and the bibliography lists only 30 items). Nevertheless, this is a good, well-written introductory text, although some might consider a number of its views, based as they are on the latest trends in scholarship, to be controversial (e.g., South African whites are referred to as "settlers"). Recommended.
