A history of Africa from the 16th to the 18th centuries, this study concentrates on the continuing evolution of African states and cultures, the increase in external trade, and the consequences of the slave trade.
The seriesis co-published in Africa with seven publishers, in the United States and Canada by the University of California Press, and in association with the UNESCO Press.
"A major theme of the volume, ... taken up in the first chapter, is the struggle for international trade and its implications for Africa... a worthy and worthwhile undertaking, bringing within reasonably affordable reach, a comprehensive survey which should long stand as a basic introductory text on the period. -" Kevin Shillington, CORRUPTION & DEMOCRATISATION
"Reviews of the Series:" .
"... a real contribution to scholarship. -" Roland Oliver, the TLS
"The General History of Africa was launched in 1970, when an International Scientific Committee of 39 scholars was formed to oversee the writing and publication of a complete survey of the African past, from pre-history to the present. The laudable aim of the project was to break free from the straightjacket of Eurocentrism, and to provide a history that reflected a range of African views without imposing any set historical interpretation. -" David M. Anderson, INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS
