- The History of African Development – published by the African Economic History Network (AEHN) – aims to draw experts in the field of African History, Economics and African Development Studies together around an open access textbook. The textbook is primarily intended for teachers/lecturers and undergraduate students, at African universities, but also for an interested wider public audience. The AEHN is reaching out to all scholars willing to contribute a concise chapter (c. 5,000 words). The chapters describe and explain various aspects of historical African development trajectories in plain English language. All chapters include a list of suggested readings, data sources and study questions to test student’s comprehension. By offering this book in an open-source environment, the AEHN seeks to facilitate a wider diffusion of the knowledge that is generated within our academic network and support capacity building among a new generation of African historians and development practitioners worldwide.??The book is used in teaching at numerous African universities, including: African School of Economics (Benin), University of Ghana, American University of Nigeria, Mountains of the Moon University (Uganda), Stellenbosch University (South Africa), University of Malawi, University of Zimbabwe etc.
