The modern history of Africa was, until very recently, written on behalf of the indigenous races by the white man, who had forcefully entered the continent during a particularly hubristic and dynamic phase of European history. In 1884, Prince Otto von Bismark, the German chancellor, brought the plenipotentiaries of all major powers of Europe together, to deal with Africa's colonization in such a manner as to avoid provocation of war.

Please listen to the sample before buying this as the narrator has delivered this so poorly that the book is hard to follow. He can’t decide on what tone to use and puts emphasis on random words within sentences. I understand that not all narrators will be the same level of skill but this is just a joke and is unenjoyable to listen to.
