From the Back Cover:

Updated and revised to reflect recent historic events and scholarly debates, this second edition of A History of Modern Africa recounts the full breadth of Africa's political, economic, and social history over the past two centuries. Author Richard Reid presents a thought-provoking and illuminating journey through the key moments and issues that have shaped Africa's recent past. Arguing that the continent's story cannot be understood without full consideration of its deeper historical experience – both the violent dynamism within Africa, and the external challenges confronting it – Reid focuses on the continuity between the pre-colonial and the postcolonial eras, in addition to highlighting the multifaceted impact of colonial rule.

The new edition places stronger emphasis on the legacies of the 19th century and the colonial period in the context of the twenty-first century. Reid also explores the contemporary tensions facing Africa, including those most apparent in recent developments in Darfur, Sudan, Somalia, Côte d'Ivoire, and Libya. A History of Modern Africa is an essential recounting of the turning points of Africa's past and the rich and diverse strands of African culture that will help shape its future. 

About the Author:

Richard Reid is Reader in the History of Africa at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. He is the author of Political Power in Pre-Colonial Buganda: Economy, Society and Warfare in the Nineteenth Century (2002), War in Pre-Colonial Eastern Africa (2007), and Frontiers of Violence in Northeast Africa (2011), as well as numerous articles on the nineteenth- and twentieth-century history of east and northeast Africa.
