A History of the Yoruba People

by Stephen Adebanji Akintoye

A History of the Yoruba People is a thorough examination of the origins and history of one of Africa’s most prominent groups. Yoruba are one of the most explored African ethnicities, with a population of approximately 40 million scattered across Western Africa and diaspora communities in Europe, the Caribbean, Latin America, and North America. To date, however, only few have completely wrestled with the historical roots and growth of this group, which has contributed to influencing the way African societies are evaluated from prehistoric to present times. This excellent work combines four decades of history study with modern interpretations and analyses to provide the most comprehensive and authoritative volume to date. This extraordinarily clear overview collects and disseminates a plethora of research and discourses on Yoruba studies for a larger audience than ever before.

The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order

bySamuel P. Huntington

The classic study of post-Cold War international relations, more relevant than ever in the post-9/11 world, with a new foreword by Zbigniew Brzezinski.

Since its initial publication, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order has become a classic work of international relations and one of the most influential books ever written about foreign affairs. An insightful and powerful analysis of the forces driving global politics, it is as indispensable to our understanding of American foreign policy today as the day it was published. As former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski says in his new foreword to the book, it “has earned a place on the shelf of only about a dozen or so truly enduring works that provide the quintessential insights necessary for a broad understanding of world affairs in our time.”

How Europe Underdeveloped Africa

by Walter Rodney

Before a bomb ended his life in the summer of 1980, Walter Rodney had created a powerful legacy. This pivotal work, How Europe Underdeveloped Africa, had already brought a new perspective to the question of underdevelopment in Africa. His Marxist analysis went far beyond the heretofore accepted approach in the study of Third World underdevelopment. How Europe Underdeveloped Africa is an excellent introductory study for the student who wishes to better understand the dynamics of Africa s contemporary relations with the West.

Destruction of Black Civilization: Great Issues of a Race from 4500 B.C. to 2000 A.D.

byChancellor Williams

The Destruction of Black Civilization took Chancellor Williams sixteen years of research and field study to compile. The book, which was to serve as a reinterpretation of the history of the African race, was intended to be “”a general rebellion against the subtle message from even the most ‘liberal’ white authors (and their Negro disciples): ‘You belong to a race of nobodies. You have no worthwhile history to point to with pride.’”” The book was written at a time when many black students, educators, and scholars were starting to piece together the connection between the way their history was taught and the way they were perceived by others and by themselves.

Formation: The Making of Nigeria from Jihad to Amalgamation

by Fola Fagbule & Feyi Fawehinmi

What do you get when dare-devil jihadists, mad English missionaries, and proud, stubborn warring natives meet in a clash? Nigeria.

Formation: The Making of Nigeria from Jihad to Amalgamation tracks the unlikely series of events and characters that turned a collection of disparate nations into a British colony in 1914. But the story of Nigeria’s formation begins much earlier, in 1804, when the jihadists launched their attack on countries along the Niger river. What unfolds is a story of conquests and slavery, betrayals and bravery, rivers and riots, victors and vanquished, all of which are central to understanding modern Black struggles.
