 About the Book 

After World War II, alien rule in Africa began to dwindle, as upwards of 30 independent African nations emerged by the early 1960s. The author has selected and arranged eight documents and readings to aid in a modern African history. They discuss: the opening of Africa, philosophies and systems of colonial rule, and the effect of World War I on the African scene- the rise of nationalism- the independence explosion- the new African governments- Pan-Africanism- African culture- and such problem areas as South Africa, Southern Rhodesia, and Angola.
