Authoritative and comprehensive, this book provides a wide-ranging history of Africa from earliest prehistory to the present day-using the cultural, social, political, and economic lenses of Africa as instruments to illuminate the ordinary lives of Africans. The result is a fresh survey that includes a wealth of indigenous ideas, African concepts, and traditional outlooks that have escaped the writing of African history in the West. The new edition includes information on the recent conflicts in Libya and the Sudan, as well as additional content on the experiences and contributions of women. A companion website provides students and scholars of Africa with access to a wealth of supporting resources for each chapter, including new historic maps video and audio clips, and links to sites for further research.
