"This authoritative work covers the entire span of human history across the African continent from the earliest emergence of hominids in eastern and southern Africa to the release of Nelson Mandela in February 1990. Drawing on forty years of teaching and research, Professor Oliver arranges the book thematically, beginning with the human colonisation of different regions of Africa, the origins of food production and the formation and diffusion of African languages. … In the concluding chapters of this remarkable survey of African history, Professor Oliver guides us through the economic, political and social developments which gave rise to the modern African nation states." .
