Colonial Africa, 1884-1994, Second Edition, presents a balanced, accessible, and comprehensive overview of how Africans experienced European colonial rule. This brief and affordable text is organized in a "layered" approach that gives students a deeper insight into the ways in which Africans encountered, shaped, confronted, depicted, and ended colonialism.
New to this Edition:
- New sections on railways, ethnicity, gender, and religion
- Expanded discussions of the activities of missionaries and precolonial African politics and expansionism
- More oral history sources, like the testimony of a forced laborer who lived through the Maji Maji Rebellion of 1905-1907
- Additional sources from recent fiction, such as the account by South African novelist Fred Khumalo of the hundreds of African soldiers who died in a maritime disaster in 1917
- An updated examination of the legacies of colonial rule based on recent events in Africa and Europe
- Five new photos
