From the exodus of early modern humans to the growth of African diasporas, Africa has had a long and complex relationship with the outside world. More than a passive vessel manipulated by external empires, the African experience has been a complex mix of internal geographic, environmental, sociopolitical and economic factors, and regular interaction with outsiders. Peter Mitchell attempts to outline these factors over the long period of modern human history, to find their commonalities and development over time.

Introducing Africa : definitions, routes, resources and interactions -- The development and spread of African farming systems -- The Nile and Red Sea corridors -- Africa in the Indian Ocean world system -- Africa's other sea : the Sahara and its shores -- Africa's opening to the Atlantic -- Out-of-Africa III : the archaeology of the African diaspora -- Reconnecting Africa : patterns, problems and potentials.
