This set of books on Africa was written specifically for use in a one-year general African history course. Volume 1 traces African history from the earliest man-apes to the beginning of the nineteenth century. Encompassed in this period are such broad subjects as the Neolithic revolution, Bantu migrations, Sudanic states, the rise of Islam, the beginnings of European Imperialism, and the slave trade. Volume 2 continues this survey of sub-Saharan Africa from 1800 through 1945. Major topics covered in some detail are European Imperialism and the scramble for Africa, European systems of rule, African nationalism, and the drive for independence. Volume 3 relates the nationalistic drive for an end to European political Imperialism and the subsequent difficult years of independence through the latter 1980s.
