Meanwhile, what has replaced the old... more...

  • The Partition of Africaby John Mackenzie

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 30.95

    Much of the historical debate surrounding the partition of Africa, the events that led up to it and its implications for the continent itself and for the rest of the world is so controversial that it is difficult to provide a coherent survey of the shifting theories of the last twenty years.
