Edited BY J o h n E d w a r d P h i l i p s Philips University of Rochester Press 668 Mt. Hope Avenue Rochester, NY 14620, USA P.O. Box 9, Woodbridge Suffolk IP12 3DF, UK Writing African History is an essential work for anyone who wants to write, or even seriously read, African history. It will replace Daniel McCall’s classic Africa in Time Perspective as the introduction to African history for the next generation and as a reference for professional historians, interested readers, and anyone who wants to understand how African history is written. This new volume reflects the development of African history since 1964, and is certain to become the most important guide to the field for the twenty-first century. “…a serious, balanced, and useful work that ought to become basic for outsiders new to the field as well as for specialized Africanists. —Joseph C. Miller, T. Cary Johnson, Jr. Professor of History, University of Virginia “African history has clearly come of age with this monumental, comprehensive guide.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
