Global historical events are too often recounted exclusively through European and American voices. "African Voices of the Global Past" explores six major historical developments of global significance the Atlantic slave trade, industrialization, colonialism, the World Wars, decolonization, and the development of modern feminism from an African perspective. Voices emerge throughout the text in the form of primary sources that explore the personal accounts of individuals. These enable students to look beyond the indistinct figures of Africans in European and American accounts to see the people directly involved and affected by the major global changes they experienced. Featuring contributed chapters from renowned scholars, many from the continent of Africa or the African diaspora, "African Voices of the Global Past" offers a unique view of global history from a traditionally overlooked perspective. This book is a perfect supplement for world history and African history instructors seeking to relate a compelling narrative of major world events."
