SchuhJes More than 1 year ago
I was required to read this book for an Africa and the World course. I found it extremely hard to read. I am a fairly avid reader and this is so dry and boring. It is worse than a text book.
The majority of the book is about how all the different European countries (mainly Britain and France) carved up Africa to exploite its people and resources. Boahen also talks about about the different African revolts and rebellions. Also, he talks about the African people's demand for a reformed government and reform in all aspects of everyday African life (education, social organizations, etc...).
