This volume of The ANNALS provides a unique opportunity for fresh insight into Africa‚Äôs past, present, and future by examining crucial historical turning points in African history over the past 75 years. The distinguished authors emphasize that understanding the reality of Africa in the twenty-first century requires viewing the continent within a broader context of recent world history. Through the lens of four watershed events‚ÄĒWorld War II, the end of colonialism, the cold war, and the new global interconnections‚ÄĒthey show how much of what happens on the African continent has its origins in Washington, London, Paris, Moscow, or Beijing, just as events in Africa can shape the politics and economies of the world, and that we ignore Africa to our own peril.
