A book in a 6-vol. companion series to the Peoples of Africa set, which explores chronologically the history of each of the 5 African regions. Following a brief overview of the geography, climate, and people who characterize the region, each successive historical era is explored in detail, from prehistory to today. These volumes provide the essential information on African history -- migrations and kingdoms, colonialism and resistance, and the independence movements that resulted in the continent’s 53 nations of today. This sixth vol. covers such topics as: the Nok civilization; Kanem-Borno, seat of one of the world’s longest reigning dynasties; Fulani jihads; Resistance to British rule led by Igbo women in the Women’s War of 1929-30; and Biafra. Two-color format.
