Reviews

Here is the story from the other side: it serves as a needed corrective to the ubiquitous Eurocentric point of view....the extraordinary myth...that Africa has no history. THE TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
Boahen's interpretation is not only interesting in itself, but also constitutes a significant document in the intellectual history of Africa, a statement of what Africans in the mid-1980s think about their colonial past. - Philip D. Curtin, The Johns Hopkins University
