Africa Since 1935
Ali AlʼAmin Mazrui, Christophe Wondji
Heinemann, 1993 - Africa - 1025 pages
The result of years of work by scholars from all over the world, The UNESCO General History of Africa reflects how the different peoples of Africa view their civilizations and shows the historical relationships between the various parts of the continent. Historical connections with other continents demonstrate Africa's contribution to the development of human civilization. Each volume is lavishly illustrated and contains a comprehensive bibliography. This final volume of the acclaimed series of African history by African scholars takes on the complex political, economic, and cultural challenges the continent has faced--and still faces--in shaking off the legacy of colonialism. The book begins with Mussolini's invasion of Ethiopia in 1935 and continues on through the struggle for independence in the years following World War II. The glittering but uncertain dawn of independence that began in the 1960s has resulted in a quest for development that continues today.
