Medieval Africa, 1250-1800

by Roland Oliver, Anthony Atmore


Review
"...an impressive study-copiously illustrated with detailed maps...a valuable tool for teachers eager and willing to introduce their students to the premodern history of Africa. Africanist scholars will find much that is useful there. This is a book I will make my graduate students working in Africa own." Religious Studies Review

"Only a handful of other scholars can match the author's master of historiography and source materials available before the mid-1990s." Historian

Product Description
This radically revised and updated companion volume to the authors' well-known Africa since 1800 (now in its fourth edition) takes African history from about 1250 AD, when African societies were expanding their political and economic scope, and when Islamic influences were already reaching across the Sahara and down the Indian Ocean coastline. It continues through the period of early European contact from the fifteenth century onward, with much emphasis on expanding Atlantic trade.
