Northrup, David : Boston College
Advance praise: "In this judicious and sweeping survey, David Northrup astutely examines Africans' active and wide ranging engagements with Europeans over four centuries. Not just victims, Africans proved remarkably resilient and adaptable in their varied encounters with Europeans. Encompassing both collective experiences and individual voices, Northrup paints a rich portrait of the African response."
--Philip Morgan, Johns Hopkins University
