Explore the great empires, pivotal events, and rich cultures from over 200,000 years of African history - from an African perspective.

The story of the world's second-largest continent is as intricate as it is vast. Starting with prehistory and the fossils left behind in Ethiopia by the earliest humans, this book captures a narrative that traverses great ancient civilizations, from the Kingdom of Aksum to the empires of West Africa and sultanates of the East, and explores history-defining events such as the Transatlantic Slave Trade and the liberation of Nelson Mandela.

Written by authors and scholars of African heritage, and with features on African mythologies, tribal customs, the African diaspora, and the key figures in the struggle for independence, this stunning and comprehensive history is vital for anyone who wants to learn more about Africa's rich, complex, and fascinating heritage. Packed with images, artefacts, timelines, and maps, Africa: The Definitive History of a Continent is an important educational tool and an immersive joy to read and browse.
