The Practice of History in Africa

A History of African Historiography

by Abiegberi Joe Alagoa

The Practice of History in Africa offers a history of African historiography from an African perspective. It attempts to answer some of the questions concerning the practice of history from the civilizations of ancient Egypt, through the varied cultures and regions of the continent to contemporary times. The book presents the philosophy of the oral tradition as it co-existed and co-exists with the written traditions of ancient Egypt, the Islamic tradition, and the western European tradition of historiography.
