This history deals with the twenty-year period between 1880 and 1900, when virtually all of Africa was seized and occupied by the Imperial Powers of Europe. Eurocentric points of view have dominated the study of this era, but in this book, one of Africa’s leading historians reinterprets the colonial experiences from the perspective of the colonized.

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...).
