Book review

This compact work was written by African scholars. Hitherto, most histories of areas colonized by Europeans have been written by the colonizers. This is a history of African people which is not limited to European activity in that continent. In the first half of the book, the authors discuss the influence of geography and of events taking place elsewhere on the African continent (North Africa and the Nile Valley) on the states and kingdoms of West Africa from medieval times to the coming of the European Europeans. The second half discusses the major period of European tracing, colonial rule, and the drive of African people for independence, a momentous and turbulent time in African history. The authors conclude by discussing the 1960's, the decade of true independence. The history of West Africa is not only important in its own right, it is important to the understanding of Afro-American history. Because of the slave trade, most black people in America are descended from the members of West African kingdoms and tribes. T. A. Osae was headmaster of Prempeh College in Kumasi, Chana; S. N. Nwabara was Director of the Hansberry Institute of African Studies at the University of Nigeria in Nsukka and a well-known historian; A. T. O. Odunsi was Vice-Principal, Government College in Ibadan, Nigeria. They are all prominent African scholars.
