Africa since 1940 by Frederick Cooper

Book Description

Frederick Cooper's book on the history of decolonization and independence in Africa is part of the textbook series New Approaches to African History. This text will help students understand the historical process out of which Africa's position in the world has emerged. Bridging the divide between colonial and post-colonial history, it allows readers to see just what political independence did and did not signify and how men and women, peasants and workers, religious leaders and local leaders sought to refashion the way they lived, worked, and interacted with each other.

Africa in the World by Frederick Cooper Africa in the World, Hardback (March 2014)

Of the many pathways out of empire, why did African leaders follow the one that led to the nation-state, whose dangers were recognized by Africans in the 1940s and 50s? Frederick Cooper revisits a long history in which Africans were empire-builders, the objects of colonization, and participants in events that gave rise to global capitalism.

Empires in World History by Frederick Cooper Empires in World History, Paperback (July 2011)

Empires - vast states of territories and peoples united by force and ambition - have dominated the political landscape for more than two millennia. This title departs from conventional European and nation-centered perspectives to take a look at how empires relied on diversity to shape the global order.
