This detailed exploration of the African past, from prehistory to about 1870, offers an up-to-date complement to the Cambridge History of Africa. Covering all facets of the continent's history with exceptional erudition, Professor Isichei displays immense learning and an exhaustive command of the literature. The study reflects several emphases in recent scholarship, focussing on 'history seen from below', on changing modes of production, on gender relations and on ecology. A second volume, now in preparation, will cover the period from 1870 to 1995.
