Updated and revised to emphasise long-term perspectives on current issues facing the continent, the new 2nd Edition of A History of Modern Africa recounts the full breadth of Africa's political, economic, and social history over the past two centuries.

  • Adopts a long-term approach to current issues, stressing the importance of nineteenth-century and deeper indigenous dynamics in explaining Africa's later twentieth-century challenges
  • Places a greater focus on African agency, especially during the colonial encounter
  • Includes more in-depth coverage of non-Anglophone Africa
  • Offers expanded coverage of the post-colonial era to take account of recent developments, including the conflict in Darfur and the political unrest of 2011 in Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya

Keywords: African History, colonialism, British Empire, African Independence, African History, Cote d'Ivoire
