The Making of Africa


For men like Dr. Livingstone Africa was the “Dark Continent”sunk in ignorance and backwardness,awaiting only the rough grasp of the Europeans to shake it into life. This book seeks to give a perspective to the history of Africa by seeing it through the eyes of numerous contemporaries,from explorers to missionaries,slaves to statesmen.Their letters,diaries and memoirs give us a fresh and vivid insight into the complex history of a remarkable continent,and into the lives of the men who experienced it.
