9780230308473: History of Africa

In a single volume, History of Africa offers readers a richly illustrated narrative introduction to the history of the entire continent, from earliest times through to the present day. Building on the book's established reputation and success, this third edition has been revised and updated throughout in the light of new research and recent events. A companion website now also supports the text.

Kevin Shillington traces the history of the continent through the ancient world to medieval, modern and contemporary Africa. He explores the early emergence of farming; the kingdoms of Ancient Egypt, Aksum and Meroe; medieval empires; the spread and impact of Islam; the role of trade and religion; and the development of Africa's wide range of pastoral, agricultural and hunting societies.

Review:

Praise for the third edition:
"History of Africa provides extraordinary coverage of the basic history of the entire continent of Africa in a way that is accessible for new students." - Timothy Cleaveland, University of Georgia

"The readability of the book, the valuable maps and illustrations, and the coverage of the precolonial period as well as more modern eras, make this textbook the best on the market." - David Chappell, University of Hawaii

"This new edition maintains Shillington's position as an expert who is adept at providing readers with an engaging and intricate portrait of Africa's past. . . A master of the material, Shillington presents a volume that flows and informs. History of Africa is a compelling narrative of change over time on the continent. . . There is an effective incorporation of new evidence in this edition that enhances our understanding of African history." - Elizabeth MacGonagle, University of Kansas

"Shillington's work is an excellent introduction for students who are new to African history." - Miles Larmer, University of Sheffield, UK

Praise for previous editions:
"Shillington's coverage is comprehensive, his presentation clear, and his content well up to date with the latest research."- J.B.Peires, University of Transkei (now Walter Sisulu University), South Africa

"...a work with many virtues...stylistic lucidity, profusion of clear maps and excellent illustrations." – International Journal of African Historical Studies
