History • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

In these 36 lectures Professor Vickery educates listeners about Africa with meticulous scholarship. Vickery has visited Africa many times, and his affection for the land and people fills his voice with warmth. At the same time, despite (and because of) a lifetime of scholarship in the field, Vickery carefully limits his claims and takes care to explain where his comments don't apply, and when and how he draws on other scholars. He repeatedly quotes African writers to let them speak for themselves. The result is a richly engaging introduction to sub-Saharan Africa that stretches from prehistory into the future, touching on subject matter from geography and soil chemistry to politics and poetry.
