Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0816022097, Hardcover)

This volume is part of a historical atlas series designed for young people. From the Mycenaean society of ancient Greece to the Aztec empire of 15th-century Mexico, the series aims to be a useful resource for understanding and appreciating bygone civilization. The books set out to offer young adults a systematic, cross-disciplinary overview of the world's important cultures. Each atlas is illustrated and contains charts, tables and chronologies to put significant events and periods into perspective. Special feature spreads highlight interesting facets of a culture, as well as the centers that can still be highlighted today. The series is aimed at young people from ten upwards. This volume explores the history of Africa, discussing such topics as the ancient kingdoms, the slave trade and the Great Trek. It also surveys present-day Africa in a region-by-region format, spotlighting such topics as the lifestyle of the nomadic Tuareg of Algeria and the Christians of Ethiopia.
