The Africans: A Triple Heritage

By Ali A. Mazrui

Brief Description

Contemporary Africa is the product of three major influences--an indigenous heritage, Western culture, and Islamic culture. The Africans book looks at these legacies, how they co-exist, and their impact on the continent and the people who were called African. This Reader, a supplement to the PBS telecourse, provides an introduction to a variety of historical and contemporary writings on Africa. (Source)
