Getting to Know West Africa – 3 Books I’m Reading

I’m on a mission to learn more about life in pre-colonial Africa. I’ve started with West Africa, specifically the Yoruba peoples and it is a fascinating journey so far. Here are three books I’ve been reading and how they come at the subject matter from different angles.


  1. Ooh great, good recs there. I’ve just bought “It’s a Continent: Unravelling Africa’s history one country at a time” by Astrid Madimba and Chinny Ukata which I think is going to be a useful introductory read and I will then go poking through its bibliography.
