Books On African History

14 Jan

I asked the Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front of South Africa for book recommendations. Here is their response:


Some books we might recommend are:

• Frederick Cooper, “Africa Since 1940” for a general history of Africa.
• “Cambridge History of South Africa” (includes some good authors such as
Legassick and Bonner) for a good overview of SA history.
•”Illustrated History of South Africa” (Reader’s Digest) – has some
liberal interpretations, but good for beginners and has Zulus.
• “Black Man’s Burden – Africa and the Curse of the Nation State” by Basil

Hope that helps.
