African Cities and Towns before the European Conquest

Synopsis

This richly illustrated book traces the precolonial development of African towns, cities, and architecture south of the Sahara. At once it dispels the stereotypical view of Africans living in simple, primitive, look-alike agglomerations, scattered about without any appreciation for planning and design.
