MEDIA REVIEWS

A very well informed and sharply stated historiography... should be in every historiography student's kitbag. A tour de force... it made me think a great deal. - Terence Ranger, The Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies

You will finish this book better informed, with a better understanding of Africa and a clearer idea of the questions. - Robert Giddings, Tribune

This small book is a smart and stimulating essay exploring issues of history, sources and methods, Africa in the world, colonialism and postcolonialism, and the past in the present as a means of introducing students and others to academic thinking about African history. - Tom Spear, Journal of African History
