A Book to Read and Love - History of Africa - Kevin Shillington

 


A short summary of History of Africa:

A thorough chronology of Africa.

My favorite quote about Africa:

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


Questions to ponder while reading History of Africa:

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

Did you realize how unconquered the land really was?

My thoughts about the book:

A deep dive into the African continent.

Cleared up many misconceptions.

This is a beefy book.  Take your time.
