Summary
"In An African Classical Age, Christopher Ehret brings to light 1,400 years of social and economic transformation across Africa from Uganda and Kenya in the north to Natal and the Cape in the south. The book offers a much-needed portrait of this region during a crucial period in which basic features of precolonial African societies and cultures emerged." "The culmination of twenty-five years of research, this historical survey fundamentally challenges how we view the place not only of eastern and southern Africa, but of Africa as a whole in the early eras of world history."--Jacket
