Professor Harry A. Gailey's
HISTORY OF AFRICA
in 4 volumes
A fourth volume has been added to Dr. Harry A. Gailey's distinguished series on African history:
HISTORY OF AFRICA:
Contemporary Developments, Vol.IV
Volume IV, Contemporary Developments,
takes up the account of happenings in the 1980's. Because these developments are too extensive and complicated to simply add to Volume 3, it was decided to make a separate volume. An introduction, "African Realities," provides an overview of the many problems confronting Africa today. This introduction includes a description of circumstances prior to 1990, so that more recent events will not be out of context. There are discussions about civil wars, misgovernment and corruption,
genocide, AIDS, and the general deterioration of the quality of life. Dr. Gailey's new book offers a fairly concise record of major developments in each country throughout sub-Saharan Africa in the last decade of the twentieth century.
Orig. Ed. 2002 178 pp. ISBN 1-57524-163-3 Paper
Vol.III - HISTORY OF AFRICA: From 1945 to Present
The nationalistic drive for an end to European
political imperialism and the subsequent difficult years of independence through the latter 1980s, are related in this third volume. It is hoped that the reorganization with the new information will allow more flexibility to instructors of university history and political science courses while giving to the general reader a capsulated description of what has occured in each country of this complex continent during the near half-century since World War II.

Continuing the survey of sub-Saharan Africa, this volume contains material from 1800 through 1945. Major topics covered in some detail are European imperialism and the scramble for Africa, European systems of rule, African nationalism, and the drive for independence.
