African History offers instructors and students a rich selection of primary source materials and excellent essays on a wide range of themes. These readings can either be used alone or along with supplementary materials in the teaching and learning of African history or African Studies from prehistory to the present. Put together by devoted African history teachers with a combined classroom experience of over twenty-four years (spanning three continents), the book provides a bumper harvest of topics of immense interest to students at all levels. This text contains materials not often found in regular textbooks; they have been classroom-tested, and have been found to not only generate lively discussions among students, but also inculcate in them a deep-seated curiosity to learn more about Africa. This, together with the multidisciplinary nature of the essays, makes this book a source material no serious instructor, student, or general reader can afford to ignore.
