A revised edition of ""Africa North of the Limpopo: the Imperial Experience since 1800"", ""North of the Limpopo"" does not end with the passing of the formal ""imperial"" era, but goes beyond this to take in the situation in independent Africa after the withdrawal of the colonial powers. Throughout the book the authors have striven to achieve a balance between European activity and African initiatives and responses in Africa. Part 1 of this book covers events in Africa to the end of the partitioning period, which almost coincides with the end of the nineteenth century. Part 2 deals with events in the twentieth century. Like the previous edition, this is a textbook for South African students, but contains little on South African history, as the title indicates.
