April’s book of the month is A History of Africa, written by Kevin Shillington and published by Palgrave Macmillan.
In a single volume, it examines the history of the continent from the earliest times to the present day. It’s a perfect example of the kind of book that’s always in high demand but that is rarely donated to us.
Luckily, thanks to our supporters the Beit Trust, 66 copies of A History of Africa will be on their way to Malawi with our next shipment. There will be more copies to follow to Zambia and Zimbabwe.
