Front Cover
Pearson Education, 1984 - Statesmen - 100 pages
"Women have played a far more central role in Africa than the history books often suggest. Here are lively portraits of twelve key figures. Their periods of influence range from ancient Egypt to the colonial era. This book offers informative reading for secondary school and university students not only in Africa, but in the rest of the world. It will also have an appeal to the general audience interested in the role of women in history." -- Back cover.
