Covering the entire continent from Morocco, Libya, and Egypt in the north to the Cape of Good Hope in the south, and the surrounding islands from Cape Verde in the west to Madagascar, Mauritius, and Seychelles in the east, theEncyclopedia of African Historyis a new A-Z reference resource on the history of the entire African continent. With entries ranging from the earliest evolution of human beings in Africa to the beginning of the twenty-first century, this comprehensive three volume Encyclopedia is the first reference of this scale and scope. In nearly 1,100 entries, theEncyclopedianot only examines the well-established topics in African history but also looks at the social, economic, linguistic, anthropological, and political subjects that are being re-evaluated or newly opened for historical analysis by recent research and publication. All entries are at least 1,000 words in length and range from factual narrative entries to thematic and analytical discussions, and combinations ofall these. Longer entries range from 3,000 to 5,000 words in length and analyze broader topics such as regional general surveys and wide historical themes including the African Diaspora and Africa in World History. TheEncyclopedia of African Historyis an easily accessible resource that provides an introduction to virtually all aspects of African history from the New Kingdom of Ancient Egypt to Nigeria's Fourth Republic. As the only reference resource with the latest in African history scholarship, this Encyclopedia is essential for those who are involved in teaching, researching, or studying Africa and its history. Also includes 99 maps.
