Shillington taught History and English at Secondary School in Zambia in the early 1970s. During the early 1980s, he trained history teachers at the University of Botswana, whose main campus is located in Gaborone, Botswana. From the mid-1980s he has been a freelance historian and biographer, specializing mostly in African History.

Shillington's "History of Africa" serves its purpose; namely, an introduction and historical survey of the history of Africa from ancient to modern time. The historical accuracy of the text - especially concerning the time before the bronze age - is seriously dubious, and moot at best.

The study of African history came of age in the 1960s, coinciding with the emergence of many newly-independent modern African states. Professional historians working in the universities and archives of Africa, Europe and north America have over the past thirty years, produced millions of words and hundreds of volumes on various aspects of the history of Africa. Consequently, most African countries are now able to sport their own 'national' histories. 4238 Washington Street Ro Un

  • Samowar
As someone who never read about Africa's history, this book is superbly clear. Literally, every sentence the author wrote is very easy to understand. Considering this book covers such a broad time span (from a few thousand BC to present day) and include all parts of Africa, it could have been easily jarring and convoluted. But every chapter is written with such clarity
  • Juce
Very accurate literature. The book is easy to read, and is organized as expected. If the theory of evolution offends you, please be warned, the first few chapters talks about that subject.
  • Gldasiy
This book was a requirement for school but found it to be a dense read. Usually, I enjoy my textbooks and sometimes purchase them but I am happy to return this book. It arrived late but in good condition.
  • Fearlesshunter
Great textbook for anyone seeking to learn about African history!
  • HeonIc
Only a few chapters in and I'm so intrigued. Learned a lot so far and can't wait to learn more.
  • Bumand
This book is an incredibly detailed chronicle of Africa. My travels to this great continent inspired me to learn more of its history. My desire was to obtain a greater general knowledge of the "cradle of man" and trace human origins in relationship to cultures, migrations, et cetera. Although I feel that this book is a brilliant work, it is superfluous with detail and exceeds my personal wants or needs. I tend to get lost in the constant infinite details of this book. It is a 'hard read'. The book is a scholar's delight of ad infinitum names, places, and events which I cannot possible retain.
  • I ℓ٥ﻻ ﻉ√٥υ
Straightforward read, appropriate for high school students and a good starting place for beginning learners of African History.
Really goes in depth of african history.
