Editorial Reviews

Review

“History of Africa remains the best introductory textbook on the market. This comprehensive and engaging overview of African history takes the reader on a fascinating journey from human origins to the present.” ―Professor Alicia Decker, Pennsylvania State University, USA

“One of the most comprehensive and incisive treatments of African history. Lucid and coherent, it conveys the complexities and diversity of the African historical experience. Students, scholars and general readers will find this narrative engaging and compelling.” ―Dr Bonny Ibhawoh, McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada

“A clear, readable narrative of the entire span of the continent's history, augmented by the best maps and illustrations of any textbook.” ―Professor Lisa A. Lindsay, University of North Carolina at Chapel-Hill, USA

“Shillington's History of Africa remains as relevant as ever. Starting with the origins of humankind and authoritatively guiding readers to the present day, this is a superb account of a vast story, tenaciously placing Africa's peoples at its centre.” ―Dr Wayne Dooling, SOAS, University of London, UK

“The standard textbook on the subject. Readable and comprehensive, the latest edition has numerous colour photos, and has been thoroughly updated.” ―Professor Hakim Adi, University of Chichester, UK

“The best edition of Shillington yet.” ―Professor Paul Landau, University of Maryland at College Park, USA
