This is not only a brief introduction to African history, but an attempt to correct some of the misconceptions held about the continent and its people. Whether or not one agrees with some of the author's opinions, one will find this an easy-to-read, informative overview of the subject. Until very recently it was assumed and perpetuated through histories that the only history of Africa is that of the white man. Here is a chance to read in a popular style the fascinating African story as seen through the eyes and viewpoints of a distinguished black historian. The binding is tight with several creases on the spine. The last half of the book has light pencil underlining and notes - easily erased. The FFEP has a name in light pencil and the original price is included with a light stamp. Writer's notes are at the end of each chapter; a bibliography and index are included. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
