The Encyclopedia of Africa presents the most up-to-date and thorough reference on this region of ever-growing importance in world history, politics, and culture. Its core is comprised of the entries focusing on African history and culture from OUP's acclaimed five-volume Africana - nearly two-thirds of these 1,300 entries have been updated, revised, and expanded to reflect the most recent scholarship. Articles cover prominent individuals, events, trends, places, political movements, art forms, business and trade, religions, organizations, contemporary nations of sub-Saharan Africa, ethnic groups, and European colonial powers, Congo River, Ivory trade, Mau Mau rebellion, and Pastoralism.
