The Britannica Guide to Africa Series


Africa is a land where the juxtaposition of ancient customs and modern developments greets its inhabitants daily. After centuries under the influence of foreign invaders, slave traders, and settlers from other lands, African nations relish their independence even though many have encountered several obstacles to stability. Bound by similar struggles and triumphs, they are nevertheless in possession of individual cultures and traditions that have shaped the continent as a whole. This panoramic series takes readers on a journey through time to explore the histories of varied African regions, with an eye toward understanding the nature of the land as a whole.
