The History Atlas of Africa : From the First Humans to the Emergence of a New South Africa (History Atlas Series): Samuel Kasule

This volume traces the region’s earliest settlers, explores the development of societies, and describes how internal and external politics have changed the borders within Africa

Samuel Kasule, a professor of African literature, offers a wide-ranging view of African history in this heavily illustrated yet slender atlas. Proceeding chronologically, he covers topics such as the origins of humankind, the development of settled agriculture in the valley of the Nile, and the arrival of the first European colonists. Although the atlas covers African history after World War II rather too lightly, it is a useful student reference, nonetheless.
