The History and Government of Sub-Saharan Africa
All of human history begins in Sub-Saharan Africa, where scientists believe the first humans lived. Over time, thousands of ethnic groups inhabited the area, creating villages, cities, unique cultures, and governments. This book explores the historical events, movements, and people who have shaped the region of Sub-Saharan Africa over its long and varied history. How did the transatlantic slave trade affect the region? How did colonialism change the existing governments there? Readers will travel to Sub-Saharan Africa through primary sources, informative text, fact-filled sidebars, and breathtaking photographs to find the answers.
