History of Africa

The Quest for Eternal Harmony

«

"In this fourth edition of The History of Africa the historian and philosopher Molefi Kete Asante has extended the reach of his already best-selling and popular book. This edition is heavily illustrated with updated photographs, charts, and graphs as well as key narratives on themes and memes in politics, ecology, and demographics. The unique and well-researched areas of history involving the agency of the African people themselves are further highlighted with dramatic examples that bring to life the experiences of the ordinary people of Africa, and narrations of documents central to understanding the unfolding of African history.

The History of Africa written by the most prolific African American scholar is already one of the most classic books ever written on African history. It is praised by scholars who have studied Africa for decades as well as those who are newcomers to the field. Asante’s history releases the history of Africa from the chains of observers who see Africa as object and his work thrusts the continent and its people into the forefront of Africa as actors, not as spectators to the visions of others. In this way Asante’s fourth edition of The History of Africa is a visionary work based solidly on the grounding that comes from the overwhelming nature of the evidence, resources, and experiences of African people. No other history of Africa is so conscious of the narrative of its people from human origin to the 21st century."

Jabali Ade, Temple University, USA, editor of Afrocentricity in Afro-Futurism: Toward Afrocentric Futurism
