Abstract:

"Africa was partitioned and colonized by the Europeans. After military conquest came the commercial exploitation of the wealth of Africa. The intensity of resistance to colonization varied from one region to another, but a new economic and social system linked with colonization was put in place, bringing about unprecedented demographic and political change."--Publisher's description.

Examines the period of partition, conquest and occupation. Chapters 1 and 2 look at Africa and the colonial challenge and the struggle among the European nations, the partition and conquest of Africa. Chapters 3-10 examine African reaction to this challenge through initiatives and resistance in different regions of the continent, and chapter 11 deals with the situation in the independant African states, Liberia and Ethiopia between 1880-1914. Chapter 12 deals with the First World War and its consequences, while chapters 13-17 look at the methods and institutions of European domination in relation to the colonial economy as introduced by different colonial powers. The socio-cultural repercussions of foreign rule are treated in chapters 18-21 and the rise of nationalist movements is discussed in chapters 22-27. The situation in Liberia and Ethiopia from 1914 to 1935 is the theme for chapter 28 and chapters 29-30 cover Africa and the New World.
