Africa in Focus A Physical, Human and Economic Geography by Richard White

Written specifically for students in Africa, this textbook is a consolidated version of the author's three books that deal separately with the human, physical and economic aspects of African geography. It is intended as a textbook for School Certificate, O Level and A Level students. The formation of physical landforms, using examples from across the African continent, weather and climate, settlement patterns, land use, energy, industry, transport and future developments are all covered. The chapters end with exercises and objective questions which are designed to encourage students to think about what they have read and to do their own fieldwork.
