Peter Mitchell's book must be read by anyone with any interest not only in Africa, but also in archaeology and history. As the world shrinks through telecommunication and mass transportation, Mitchell's book reminds us that we have always been connected and that Africa was always part of the world. To deny or underestimate the role of Africa in the future of humankind would be a grave mistake.

North Africa and its connections to sub-Saharan Africa are then tackled .

North Africa and its connections to sub-Saharan Africa are then tackled, before focusing on the Atlantic. While most of the book is concerned with the last 2000 years of Africa's history, earlier connections are raised; not the least is the "Out-of-Africa 2" hypothesis.

Such approaches separate the histories of people in Africa from those of the West, and, is in effect, academic apartheid.

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. He examines African interconnections through Egypt and Nubia with the Near East, through multiple Indian Ocean trading systems, through the trans-Saharan trade, and through more recent incursion of Europeans. The African diaspora is also explored for continuities and resistance to foreign domination. Commonalities abound in the African experience, as do complexities of each individual period and interrelationship. MitchellOs sweeping analysis of African connections place the continent in context of global prehistory and history. The book should be of interest not only to Africanists, but to many other archaeologists, historians, geographers, linguists, social scientists and their students.
