Colonial Africa, 1884-1994, presents a balanced, accessible, and comprehensive overview of how Africans experienced European colonial rule. This brief and affordable text is organized in a "layered" approach that gives students a deeper insight into the ways in which Africans experienced colonialism and looks at how they understood the world in which they lived during this period. The book provides both a continental overview and specific regional examples, exploring the period in a thematic and chronological way. Each chapter ends with a short list of works cited and suggestions for further reading. Colonial Africa, 1884-1994, concludes with contemplations on the legacy of colonialism by Africans themselves, ranging from Nigerian musician Fela to the Kenyan environmentalist Wangari Muta Maathai.
