Summary: For surveys of African History at the undergraduate level.

This comprehensive survey is the first to provide a view of African history in the wider context of World History. The text illustrates how Africans have influenced regions beyond the continent's borders, how they have been influenced from outside, and how internal African developments can be compared and contrasted to those elsewhere in the world. Identifying and presenting key debates within the
field of African history, this volume encourages students to address the many oversimplified myths regarding the continent and its people.

    • Enables students to find the context for the often unfamiliar material contained in African history survey courses.
  • Balanced presentation of key debates.
    • Helps students realize the ever-evolving nature of historical inquiry, thus bringing the continent and its history alive.
  • Comprehensive supporting materials-Including maps, full-color images, primary source text boxes and time lines.
    • Provides students with multiple opportunities for engaging the diversity and complexity of African history. Enables instructors to forgo potentially expensive supplements.
  • Well-organized, engaging writing style.
    • Provides students with an extensive amount of information while keeping them engaged with the subject.
  • Comprehensive historical coverage-Presents African History through regional and thematic chapters which contextualize and examine the cultural, economic and political currents of African History.
    • Provides students with a contemporary approach to African History that features compelling coverage of Africa's dynamic history.
  • African "myths" addressed-e.g. Commonly held view of Africa as either primitive, exotic, unspoiled, utopian or broken continent.
    • Provides students with a realistic view of the challenges facing the continent and allows students to develop a view of the continent based on historical research rather than popular mythology.
