'This volume opens a new window into a familiar but poorly understood era in African history, and it is destined to become a treasured instructional companion in courses on modern African history. The text is a model of how to make African history come alive and speak to us through the oral, written, and visual artifacts of actors and agents in that history.' Moses Ochonu, Vanderbilt University, Tennessee
