Editorial Reviews

"Neale's book is a useful addition to the literature [of modern African studies]. In particular, Neale attacks the idea of progress and evolution in African history. Old colonialists argued that there was no progress; nationalist' writers of the 1960s emphasized the glories of the past; radical historians of the 1970s focused on continuing poverty. Neale has also included chapters on the writing of religious history; the new group' history, e.g., the history of women; and the use of oral traditions in history writing. Africanists and historians of other world areas will find this work most interesting."-Choice
