From School Library Journal:

Gr 5–8—Based upon discoveries made possible by recent advances in research techniques, five of these six books discuss the history of sub-Saharan African kingdoms from about 800 CE to the 20th century. All, except Egyptian Dynasties, were located near the Gold and Ivory Coasts of Western Africa, and authors describe the origins, development, contributions, and eventual decline of each civilization. They emphasize how rulers and chiefs shaped each empire and its contributions to African culture. Most include information about the present and objectively discuss the historical and contemporary role of Islam in the region. Large, color photos of artifacts are a strong point, but the few maps that are included are either historical or lack detail. Additionally, some of the discussions of rulers and succession struggles are dry. Despite those weaknesses, the scarcity of material about this region makes these books suitable report purchases.
