This handy resource is divided into four major sections: "Peoples of Africa," "Culture and History," "Nations," and "Biographies." "Peoples of Africa" covers more than 1000 peoples while describing 200 major ethnic groups such as the Hausa, Maasai, and Zulu in greater detail. The "Culture and History" section features the pictorial histories, ethnic distributions, and chronologies of North Africa, East Africa, West Africa, Central Africa, and Southern Africa. "Nations" covers countries from Algeria to Zimbabwe, which are described in terms of population, geography, economy, and recent historical events. More than 300 noted Africans from antiquity (Hannibal) to the present (Nelson Mandela) are included in the "Biographies" section, whose entries may be too cursory for some readers. The beautifully rendered two-color illustrations depict people, material culture, and historical events; maps and charts are included. The nine-page glossary is adequate. Collections holding the volumes on Africa and the Middle East in Macmillan's ten-volume Encyclopedia of the World Cultures will appreciate how readable and compact this work is. Recommended for public libraries, high school libraries, and undergraduate collections. (Index not seen.)--Elizabeth Connor, Medical Univ. of South Carolina Lib., Charleston
