Description :

Language: English Brand New Book. A comprehensive encyclopedia on African history with broad cultural and geographic coverage, this set covers African history from ancient times to the present. In five volumes - each devoted to a major period in the continent s development - Encyclopedia of African History and Culture spans the immense scope of African history, geography, art, cultures, peoples, personalities, and even wildlife. In-depth, heavily cross-referenced A-to-Z entries draw students, researchers, and general readers into the histories of ancient cities, powerful kingdoms, and charismatic leaders, many of whom are little known. Filled with fascinating sidebars, unusual illustrations, and a recounting of oral traditions and histories, this attractive and readable encyclopedia is an ideal source of authoritative information as well as an entertaining and illuminating guide to the world s most diverse continent. Volume I: Ancient Africa; The first volume in this set, Ancient Africa, covers the earliest stages of Africa s history, from civilization s beginnings through the Metallic Age, the kingdoms of Egypt and Nubia, Africa s interaction with ancient Greece and Rome, and the rise of Kush and Aksum. This revised volume has updated entries, expanded further reading sections, updated cross-references, and a new bibliography. Volume II: African Kingdoms; African Kingdoms focuses on the period from approximately 500 through 1500, encompassing the powerful kingdoms of Ghana, Mali, and Songhai, along with the wealthy city-states of the west and south. This volume has been revised to include expanded further reading sections, updated cross-references, and a new bibliography, as well as updated entries. Volume III: From Conquest to Colonization; Covering the period from approximately 1500 to 1850, From Conquest to Colonization examines the Grain, Gold, and Slave Coasts; the rise of the slave trade; the growing European interest in Africa; and the traditional governments, religions, and arts of the regions. This revised volume includes updated entries, expanded further reading sections, updated cross-references, and a new bibliography. Volume IV: The Colonial Era; The Colonial Era covers the colonial era from the French invasion and control over Algeria through the full-scale colonial conquest of Africa. It discusses the establishment of European colonial rule throughout the continent, the emergence of nationalist movements, and their gradual triumph throughout much of the continent in the 1950s. Volume V: Independent Africa; Independent Africa covers the independence and postcolonial era in Africa, from the bloody and lengthy wars of liberation against Portuguese colonial rule and the breakaway white minority government of Rhodesia, through South Africa s first democratic election in 1994, which ended the long era of apartheid and led Nelson Mandela to the presidency.

Synopsis : An encyclopedia on African history with broad cultural and geographic coverage, this set covers African history from ancient times to the present. In five volumes - each devoted to a major period in the continent's development it spans African history, geography, art, cultures, peoples, personalities, and even wildlife.

From Booklist: Edited by a retired professor of African studies, this revision updates a well-received, recommended 2001 work and adds two volumes. The decision regarding what to include was based on several criteria: covering Africa's "most significant historical developments and cultural features," presenting "the best established facts and interpretations," and providing information that will be "most useful and interesting for the reader" and also "helpful in bringing Africa's past and present to life."

Although the focus in the earlier set was African history from the earliest stages to the 1850s, the two new volumes bring coverage up to the present day. The primary structure continues to be chronological, with each volume representing a historical era: Ancient Africa (Prehistory through 500 C.E.); African Kingdoms (500 to 1500); From Conquest to Colonization (1500 to 1850); The Colonial Era (1850 to 1960); and Independent Africa (1960 to the Present). Each volume begins with a list of all the entry headings in the encyclopedia and the volumes in which they appear, an introduction with an overview for the volume, a list of photos and illustrations (which are all black and white), a time line, and general continent maps.

The clearly written entries are usually short and include cross-references. Reading lists in many entries and at the back of each volume lead users to books (some 2003 and 2004) but not Web sites. The glossary at the end of each volume is generic. An accurate index winds up each volume, and a cumulative index is included in volume 5.

Among other changes, entries for all of Africa's modern countries have been added to the three earliest volumes, providing long-range historical perspective. Entries for African languages, on the other hand, have been consolidated in volume 1. Updated articles and sidebars include a recent archaeological find. Information on ancient mining, the domestication of cattle, and one of the oldest known math tools is illuminating. A map of Europe's carving up of the continent and entries showing U.S. interactions with Africa are revealing. The chronological arrangement results in some topics being spread over several volumes. There are some errors; for example, although there is no entry Archaeology in volume 3, the reader is referred to it both in the "List of Entries" and in cross-references. The same is true for a nonexistent Cloth and textiles in volume 5.

The recent Encyclopedia of African History (Routledge, 2005) is more for the specialist. The revised Encyclopedia of African History and Culture fulfills its information and education goals and is highly recommended for high-school, public, and academic libraries. Arthur Meyers
