The people started capturing wild cattle and holding them in circular thorn hedges .

The people started capturing wild cattle and holding them in circular thorn hedges, resulting in domestication. They also started making pottery and built stone settlements (. For a relatively weak North African monsoon, the opposite is true, with decreased annual precipitation and less vegetation resulting in a phase of the Sahara climate cycle known as the "desert Sahara". The Sahara has been a desert for several thousand years, and is expected to become green again in about 15,000 years time (17,000 AD. .This is particularly true of Ancient Egypt and Nubia.

August 12, 2011 History. by Robert William July. Published 1970 by Scribner in New York.

This critically acclaimed work provides a comprehensive history that both illuminates and clarifies events past and present. It surveys Africa's history from its earliest beginnings to the present day, exploring themes that cut across time and place to furnish their own unity and consistency: the migrations of peoples, the power of religion, the enduring impact of Africa's climate, and Africa's relationship with the wider world-that is, the invasion of foreign peoples, ideas, and institutions that has been a pervasive influence in shaping African political, economic, and social life. This volume addresses the role of Africa's women in Africa's history, includes additional sections on slavery and the slave trade, and discusses the persistent difficulties of African societies to gain the economic and social advantages hoped for from independence. July examines Africa's peoples and its cultures with a authority that has made this book the standard in the field and an indispensable guide to understanding the complexity of the African struggle for nationhood.

I concur with the reviewer who referred to this book as being for the "type of person who refers to Africa as the black continent." While the book does contain some useful and interesting information on the history of the Africa, it was certainly written from a western perspective for a western audience that doesn't care to expand it's perspective. And not a current western perspective, but a very outdated conservative perspective. July continually uses the terms "before Christ" and "after Christ" to refer to time frames; which I find grating and unprofessional in a historical text: This isn't for a theology class. Additionally, he constructs a theory that Africa would have fared better if only the people of Africa would have accepted Christianity (and other western thought, but mostly Christianity) all while downplaying the toll that slavery took on the continent. The text is also filled with vague references to his views on subjects such as abortion, which I don't really need to see in what's supposed to be a history book, and that I probably could have surmised independently based on his obvious adherence to Christianity. The book is also written in a very dry tone with rather haphazard structure that makes it a chore to read. Of course, if you're picking up this book it's most likely for a class you need it for so my review won't save you from the tedium of reading it. Good luck.

This book, in my estimation, is one of the better books on the continent of Africa. A continent that has produced so much, yet it is still underated, being spoiled and plundered by outside intervention for many centuries. How far does one have to go back in order to find it`s beginnings, it`s origin, it`s roots? How long had Africa been a thriving, advanced civilization prior to the intervention of the Europeans? Who were the Olmec people, and how many centuries did the great kings of Mali rule their kingdoms, and should the Egyptians be called african, also. Why is modern day africa still reeling from the influence of colonialism and despotism.

You may find some of his insights helpful if you are the type person who refers to africa as the 'black continent.' Evem if this is required for a class, don't buy. your prof. couldn't concievably test you over the words of this quack.
