Thoroughly updated to reflect recent events and trends, including Africa and the war on terror, progress and problems in democratization, advances by women in politics, developments in the fight against AIDS, the growing influence of China, the establishment of the African Union, and much more-this new edition of Understanding Contemporary Africa treats the range of issues facing the continent in the first decade of the twenty-first century. The authors provide current, thorough analyses not only of history, politics, and economics, but also geography, environmental concerns, population shifts, family and kinship, the role of women, religious beliefs, and literature. Each topic is covered in an accessible style, but with reference to the latest scholarship. Maps, photographs, and a table of basic political data enhance the text, which has made its place as the best available introduction to this diverse and complex continent.

This is an incredible book if you are trying to learn more about Africa. This book discusses the origins in depth, geography, religions, climate, the book essentially explains Africa in every aspect. It is great to use as a reference book or to simply further your understanding about Africa. It is also a very easy read and each chapter flows very well. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did !!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
