African Perspectives on Colonialism

This history deals with the twenty-year period between 1880 and 1900, when virtually all of Africa was seized and occupied by the Imperial Powers of Europe. Eurocentric points of view have dominated the study of this era, but in this book, one of Africa's leading historians reinterprets the colonial experiences from the perspective of the colonized.

The Johns Hopkins Symposia in Comparative History are occasional volumes sponsored by the Department of History at the Johns Hopkins University and the Johns Hopkins University Press comprising original essays by leading scholars in the United States and other countries. Each volume considers, from a comparative perspective, an important topic of current historical interest. The present volume is the fifteenth. Its preparation has been assisted by the James S. Schouler Lecture Fund.

Reviews

"Contradict[s] the extraordinary myth that Africa 'has no history..'Boahen is one of the pioneers in the school of African historiography."—Times Literary Supplement

"Here is the story from the other side; it serves as a needed corrective to the ubiquitous Eurocentric point of view."—Choice
