Too detailed and quite difficult to follow Feb. 19 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a wonderful source of detailed information about almost anything about the African History. However, as a University student, I've found it too difficult as textbook. I also think that it lacks useful maps to clarify geographically the populations he is dealing with.
