The Making of Contemporary Africa
The Development of African Society Since 1800Book - 2016
¿A landmark in African historiography.... well planned and clearly written.¿ ¿John Lonsdale, Journal of African History This comprehensive yet accessible text critically traces the complex trajectory of African society, culture, economy, and politics across more than two centuries. Appearing nearly two decades after the previous edition was published, the third edition of The Making of Contemporary Africa has not only been revised throughout, but also includes two entirely new chapters: one specifically on the twenty-first century and one on postindependence cultural and social history.
