Overview

Understanding Contemporary Africa / Edition 5

This new edition of Understanding Contemporary Africa has been thoroughly revised to reflect the many significant events and trends of the past six years—seismic political changes, the impact of the new information technology, the strong presence of China and other foreign powers, and much more. The authors provide current analyses not only of history, politics, and economics, but also geography, environmental concerns, population shifts, and social and cultural issues. 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.
