History of Africa - Kevin Shillington - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of History of Africa:

A thorough chronology of Africa.

My favorite Kevin Shillington quote about Africa:

"The darkest thing about Africa has always been our ignorance of it." 

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Did you realize how many ecosystems existed on the African continent?

Did you realize how unconquered the land really was?

My review of History of Africa:

A deep dive into the African continent.

Cleared up many misconceptions.

This is a beefy book.  Take your time.
