Encyclopedia of Africa

Includes coverage of world history, politics, and culture for Africa. Its core is comprised of entries focusing on African history and culture from 2005's five-volume Africana—nearly two-thirds of these 1,300 entries have been updated, revised, and expanded to reflect the most recent scholarship. The articles cover prominent individuals, events, trends, places, political movements, art forms, business and trade, religions, ethnic groups, organizations, and countries throughout Africa. In-depth articles examine contemporary nations of sub-Saharan Africa, ethnic groups from various regions of Africa, and European colonial powers. Two hundred illustrations and demographic sidebars further guide and inform research. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and Kwame Anthony Appiah, eds. Available through Oxford Reference.
