Book Description: Spurred in part by the ongoing re-evaluation of sources and methods in research, African historiography in the past two decades has been characterized by the continued branching and increasing sophistication of methodologies and areas of specialization.

        Problems in African history by Robert O. Collins, James McDonald Burns, Erik Kristofer Ching, , Markus Wiener Pub edition, in English - [Rev. ed.].   West Africa’s history in this period was still very much driven by African issues. That would change over the next centuries, as some states were increasingly drawn to depend on the slave trade. But even then one cannot simply understand the history of Africa .
