Since the publication of the first edition in 1977, Africa has established itself as a leading resource for teaching, business, and scholarship. This fourth edition has been completely revised and focuses on the dynamism and diversity of contemporary Africa. The volume emphasizes contemporary culture--civil and social issues, art, religion, and the political scene--and provides an overview of significant themes that bear on Africa's place in the world. Historically grounded, Africa provides a comprehensive view of the ways that African women and men have constructed their lives and engaged in collective activities at the local, national, and global levels.

JOHN H. HANSON is Assistant Professor of History at Indiana University, Bloomington. He is cotranslator and co-editor (with David Robinson) of After the Jihad: The Reign of Ahmad al-Kabir in the Western Sudan.
