Summary

This major new revised edition of African Civilizations reexamines the physical evidence for developing social complexity in tropical Africa over the past four thousand years and considers possible explanations of the developments that gave rise to it. Graham Connah focuses on urbanism and state formation in seven main areas of Africa: Nubia, Ethiopia, the West African savanna, the West African forest, the East African coast and islands, the Zimbabwe Plateau, and parts of Central Africa. Extensively illustrated and offering an extended bibliography, this book provides essential reading on the topic.

Table of Contents

1. The context
2. Birth on the Nile: the Nubian achievement
3. The benefits of isolation: the Ethiopian Highlands
4. An optimal zone: the West African savanna
5. Brilliance beneath the trees: the West African forest and its fringes
6. The edge or the centre: cities of the East African coast and islands
7. A question of context: Great Zimbabwe and related sites
8. In the heart of Africa: the Upemba Depression and the Interlacustrine Region
9. What are the common denominators?
