Africa. From the first humans to the 21st century
Afrika. Fra de første menneskene til i dag

No continent has been populated by humans as long as Africa has, and in this book we are taken on an exciting journey, stretching from the first hunter-gatherers to the present day. The author presents up-to-date knowledge and new perspectives, highlighting Africa’s contribution to our shared global history. The book is richly complemented with pictures and maps, and is aimed at both students and wider audiences.

’(…) brilliant, broad-scoped volume written for a commonly curious reader.’


’‘… a triumph of a book (…) deserves to remain a standard work of reference for many years to come.’


‘(…) a relaxed and unpolemic case for the lack of reasons to cling to Eurosentrism. We all come from Africa, anyways.’
