Expertly curated, this beautiful book immerses the reader in the history,landscapes, wildlife, peoples and cultures of the second largest continent in the world.

Africa was the cradle of all civilisation and every single human is genetically linked to it. Divided into the five main geographic regions we start each region with a map and interesting facts about each country. Then we follow the trail through time and learn more about the peoples and cultures of the region followed by the highlights in terms of animals and landscape.

Changemakers and superstars looks at individuals from history and the present day who have made a diiference or added renown to the region.

Snapshots reveal often surprising aspects of the region in more detail such as the Botswana Metalheads or the Great Green Wall Project in West Africa.

In introduction and conclusion, the book looks at global issues such as the long history of outward migration and the impact that Africa has had upon the world which restores much needed balance to common misconceptions about this important continent The distinctive illustrations and the striking copper foiled cover will ensure this large format book will attract a lot of attention in your library and readers will be quickly enthralled by the genuinely fascinating content.

An excellent index and glossary also ensure its value as aresearch too. Highly recommended.
