This is a multidisciplinary volume that can be used as a core text in "Introduction to Africa" courses and also as a supplemental reader in various discipline-oriented courses. The authors concentrate on the crucial issues facing Africa in the 1990s and into the next decade - there is a thorough treatment not only of politics, economics, and history, but also of women and development, the family, population and urbanisation, the environment, religion, and literature. Each topic is covered in depth and on the basis of the latest available scholarship. The chapters in this revised and updated edition provide new information on the struggle for democracy in Africa, the continuing economic crisis, the transition to majority rule in South Africa, and the impact of AIDS. There is also a new chapter on Africa's international relations.
