Patrick Tracy Lowell Putnam (1904-1953) first became attracted to Africa during his undergraduate days at Harvard; the spell lasted through 25 years, one world war, three American wives, and a handful of African ones. Mark illuminates the bizarre life of a man whose career stretched from the days of gentleman ethnographers to the eve of independence in colonial Africa. Martin and Patrick O'Meara

This is a good book to use if you are studying African culture and development. The authors write in a readable style, and also do a good job of seemingly keeping their opinions out of the book. Every section is backed up with facts. Lots of graphs and pictures. This book is slightly outdated, as it lists Zaire as a country, but it is still, by far, the most comprehensive text that I have read on the cultural developments of Africa as a whole and of more specific groups.

This is a good book to introduce people to Africa and the ethnocentrism of too many writing about it, as perpetrated by one particular page, the beginning of the chapter on Art. The authors suggest that, with much African art having reached Europe, African art influenced art history! The staggering implication is that only Europe has a history of art. What about China, India, Oceania? What about Africa? Do those areas not have a history of art? Although this book is now nearly 20 years old, I would have thought that even in 1995, when it was published, that academics writing about Africa would have got past that kind of ethnocentrism. Unfortunately, this calls to mind the famous statement by Hugh Trevor-Roper, the Oxford don, who, in 1963, said there is no history in Africa: "there is only the history of Europeans in Africa. The rest is darkness."
