Africa and the West: A Documentary History, Volume 2: From Colonialism to Independence, 1875 to the Present -- by William H. Worger, Nancy L. Clark, and Edward A. Alpers
Africa and the West presents a fascinating array of primary sources to engage readers in the history of Africa's long and troubled relationship with the West. Many of the sources have not previously appeared in print, or in books readily available to students. Volume 2 picks up on the theme of conquest and covers the implementation of colonial rule, education, labor, nationalist movements, the world wars, decolonization, and independence. These documents include a German school examination for African children, the Natives Land Act from South Africa, a report on the impact of colonialism on women from the founder of the Women's League of the African National Congress, and Nelson Mandela's presidential address No Easy Walk to Freedom.
