"This is a perfect text to introduce undergraduate students to the history of European colonialism in Africa. It combines topical breadth with lucid analysis, well informed by recent scholarship."--Maxim Matusevich, Seton Hall University

"I found Colonial Africa to be very well-thought and executed. Its main strength is that it presents the topic of colonialism both as a historical event to be examined, and as a historiographical debate that has occupied historians for quite some time. It offers a solid and accessible introduction to the history and historiography of colonialism in Africa."--Esperanza Brizuela-Garcia, Montclair State University
