Africa South of the SaharaBook - 2006
Geographers typically recognize the continent of Africa as consisting of two regions: North Africa and Africa south of the Sahara. Surrounded by majestic mountain ranges, boundless deserts, and ancient historic cities, Africa south of the Sahara is rich with gold, diamonds, and oil, yet its people are among the poorest. Recent wars, ethnic conflicts, and AIDS have also taken their toll. However, through all of these, Africans have survived and stayed resilient. This book presents the reader with a look at the rich history of Africa, its language and culture, and the many problems that still face the African world today. Book jacket.
