Africa A-Z

The popularity of the first edition of this book necessitated a second revised and updated version to record the many challenges in Africa since the first edition appeared in 1998. Africa is a vast and fascinating continent whose population is fast approaching the one billion mark. Africa also has more politically independent states than any other continent. Africa A–Z attempts to provide, in a concise manner, the facts for an elementary understanding of the continent and its complex problems.
