Reviews of the Series: ... a real contribution to scholarship. - Roland Oliver in the TLS The General History of Africa was launched in 1970, when an International Scientific Committee of 39 scholars was formed to oversee the writing and publication of a complete survey of the African past, from pre-history to the present. The laudable aim of the project was to break free from the straightjacket of Eurocentrism, and to provide a history that reflected a range of African views without imposing any set historical interpretation. - David M. Anderson in INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS
