    DescriptionDramatic alterations in political power have corrected the once prevalent vision of a European-centered world. While the centers of European culture flourished, decayed, and sprouted in turn, empires in Africa rose, ruled, resisted, and succumbed. Much of Africa's past has now been excavated from ignorance and error, revealing a rich and previously little-known human heritage. This classic work draws on the whole range of literature about Africa as well as evidence provided by archaeology, oral traditions, language relationships, and social institutions. An absorbing narrative, it puts forward original conclusions that take the study of Africa a stage further.
