The series is 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 thousand pages of high-quality scholarly effort, Volume VIII has got to be the bargain work on contemporary African history. -" Kevin Shillington, CORRUPTION & DEMOCRATISATION
"Ali Mazrui's skilful introduction is essential if one is to identify the key themes that give shape to the text ... distinctive and diverse views on Africa's recent past. -" David M. Anderson, INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS
