Towns and cities have been arenas around which societies have organized themselves: as centres of trade and economic activity; as foci of political action and authority; as military garrisons; as sites of ritual power; and as places of refuge and collective security in troubled times. This collection reveals the depth of urbanization in African history.

RICHARD RATHBONE is Professor of Modern African History at SOAS, University of London.

Review:

I have seldom read a book which introduced me to so many new things - to so many fresh topics and to so much new research by scholars, many of them young, as well as by established figures such as John Thornton and Robin Law... I found this book almost a course in African Studies in itself. --African Affairs

The editors provide an excellent introduction which outlines the entire history of African urbanism in eight tightly-written pages, explains the rationale of the book in the context of the state of the art, and places the seventeen studies included here into their broader academic context. --English Historical Review

... will definitely be on my undergraduate African History reading list. --David Dorward in ARAS
