Indexes scholarly literature on the history of the world (excluding the United States and Canada) from 1450 to the present. Coverage is broad, so the database is also useful for topics in other disciplines (e.g. religion, anthropology, or political science).
The articles cover prominent individuals, events, trends, places, political movements, art forms, business and trade, religions, ethnic groups, organizations, and countries throughout Africa. In-depth articles examine contemporary nations of sub-Saharan Africa, ethnic groups from various regions of Africa, and European colonial powers.
African Newspapers is a searchable collection of historical African newspapers. The database includes over 40 newspapers published between 1800 and 1922 in Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. Coverage runs from 1800 to 1924.
