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 new survey that includes a wealth of indigenous ideas, African concepts, and traditional outlooks that have escaped the writing of African history in the West. This straight forward, illustrated and factual text allows the reader to access the major developments, personalities and events on the African continent. Written by a world expert in African history, this ground breaking survey is an indispensable guide.

Molefi Asante is a distinguished scholar and is best known for creating the discipline of Black Studies over 25 years ago. nbsp; He is the Editor for the Journal of Black Studies (Sage) and the Encyclopedia of Black Studies (Sage Reference, 12/04 nbsp; 933 units, $82k LTD). nbsp; His recent research has centered on the history and present developments of African religions.
