The State of Africa: A History of Fifty Years of I&hellip by Martin Meredith
40 of 44 people found the following review helpful
This was an excellent book covering the history of Africa from just before independence right up to the present day. It explored some difficult concepts, which at times demanded some rather gruesome descriptions, but the writing did not sensationalise the history.
I found it very well-written, and not too heavy, making it easy for a non-specialist such as myself to read it.
