Summary

Now in an extensively revised and expanded second edition, this authoritative text provides a broad introduction to the geography of Africa south of the Sahara. Exploring contemporary issues without losing sight of their historical roots, the volume analyzes the sociocultural, political, economic, and environmental processes that shape resource use and development in this rapidly changing region. Students gain a balanced view of the continent's trials and triumphs--from postcolonial political strife and the devastating impact of HIV/AIDS to current progress toward democratization and sustainable growth.

The Second Edition
Updated throughout and featuring extensive new material, the second edition includes expanded coverage of physical geography and new chapters on water resources, the social geography of African children, and Western perceptions of the continent. The latest available data are reflected in numerous maps, tables, and figures; new and revised case studies; and helpful resource listings, now with key Web sites.
