Frederick Cooper's book on the history of decolonization and independence in Africa is part of the textbook series New Approaches to African History. This text will help students understand the historical process out of which Africa's position in the world has emerged. Bridging the divide between colonial and post-colonial history, it allows readers to see just what political independence did and did not signify and how men and women, peasants and workers, religious leaders and local leaders sought to refashion the way they lived, worked, and interacted with each other.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'His writing is clear and based on careful use of data ... there is little doubt that it will become the standard text on the contemporary history of Africa.' Journal of African History
'This is brave stuff ... excellent prompts for getting students to think about the big question.' Journal of Modern African Studies
"Historian Frederick Cooper combined his strong suit in comparative history and his interest in historicizing and interrogating bodies of knowledge to produce this welcome and welcoming study of the past of Africa's present as the inaugral volume of the New Approaches to African History Series....is as accessible as it is packed with solid, current information in useful formats." Journal of Colonialism and Colonial History
