Roland Oliver's second edition of this useful book offers good chapters on Africa in the 1990s and an essay about its future as well as and excellent overview of African history. Oliver is expert and thurough. The book is well organized and on the whole interesting. However, because it is an overview the book picks up subjects and drops them in a page or two often after offering just enough to generate genuine interest. This is of course to be expected, but would be more forgivable if the author had included a list of books to read for more information on specific subjects or a bibliographic essay. More troubling is Oliver's tendency to apologize too much for the colonial powers that divided and subjugated Africa. Still, the book is valuable and lives up to its billing.

I was reminded of nothing so much as a boring college lecture initially. His style is long, long paragraphs with long sentences, stringing together seemingly disconnected facts with no linear tale emerging. But after the archaelogy and paleontology, when he gets more into sociology and politics, subjects in which he is evidently more comfortable and fluent, I felt it was worth the effort. I was amazed he was able to write such a book without ever discussing racial issues, either prejudice or discrimination based on color. I felt that was a lack. Also in the colonial discussions it had the flavor of an apologia for British actions. But he did cover the history of slavery in a clear if broad way. Ultimately I learned things I didn't know before, and I guess that's what you can get from such a book. He ended before Mandela's incredible ascent to the presidency. The book needs an epilogue.
