African Dominion: A New History of Empire in Early and Medieval West Africa Audiobook

African Dominion: A New History of Empire in Early and Medieval West Africa

Author: Michael Gomez Narrator: David Sadzin Release Date: December 2020

A groundbreaking book that puts early and medieval West Africa on the map of global history Pick up almost any book on early and medieval world history and empire, and where do you find West Africa? On the periphery. This pioneering book tells a different story. Interweaving political and social history and drawing on a rich array of sources, Michael Gomez unveils a new vision of how categories of ethnicity, race, gender, and caste emerged in Africa and in global history. Focusing on the Savannah and Sahel region, Gomez traces how Islam's growth in West Africa, along with intensifying commerce that included slaves, resulted in a series of political experiments unique to the region, culminating in the rise of empire. A radically new account of the importance of early Africa in global history, African Dominion will be the standard work on the subject for years to come.

The Man-Eaters of Tsavo, and Other East African Adventures Audiobook

The Man-Eaters of Tsavo, and Other East African Adventures

Author: J.H. Patterson Narrator: Andrew Tarrant Release Date: December 2020

During the construction of a railway line from Kenya to Uganda in 1898, the project was interrupted by two man-eating lions that targeted the workers. At the Tsavo River in Kenya where a bridge needed to be built. Over a period of about nine months, the lions killed scores of people at the site of the Tsavo River bridge. These lions were deliberately hunting humans, preferring them over any other prey. They seemed to have supernatural abilities in the way they evaded all attempts to stop them until Colonel JH Patterson, the chief engineer in charge of the project, finally managed to kill them. ‘The Man-Eaters of Tsavo’ tells the story of the events, in the first part of the book. Following the death of the lions, the book describes the bridge's completion despite additional challenges such as a flood, as well as many tales on local wildlife (including other lions) local tribes, and various hunting expeditions. The story of the man-eating lions has been adapted to film three times, the most recent being ‘The Ghost and the Darkness’ of 1996.

The Golden Rhinoceros: Histories of the African Middle Ages Audiobook

The Golden Rhinoceros: Histories of the African Middle Ages

Author: François-Xavier Fauvelle Narrator: Michael Page Release Date: October 2020

A leading historian reconstructs the forgotten history of medieval Africa. From the birth of Islam in the seventh century to the voyages of European exploration in the fifteenth, Africa was at the center of a vibrant exchange of goods and ideas. It was an African golden age in which places like Ghana, Nubia, and Zimbabwe became the crossroads of civilizations, and where African royals, thinkers, and artists played celebrated roles in the globalized world of the Middle Ages. The Golden Rhinoceros brings this unsung era marvelously to life, taking listeners from the Sahara and the Nile River Valley to the Ethiopian highlands and southern Africa. Drawing on fragmented written sources as well as his many years of experience as an archaeologist, François-Xavier Fauvelle painstakingly reconstructs an African past that is too often denied its place in history-but no longer. He looks at ruined cities found in the mangrove, exquisite pieces of art, rare artifacts like the golden rhinoceros of Mapungubwe, ancient maps, and accounts left by geographers and travelers-remarkable discoveries that shed critical light on political and architectural achievements, trade, religious beliefs, diplomatic episodes, and individual lives.

Sicily '43: The First Assault on Fortress Europe Audiobook

Sicily '43: The First Assault on Fortress Europe

Author: James Holland Narrator: Al Murray Release Date: September 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. From the bestselling author of Normandy '44 comes a major new history of one of World War II's most crucial campaigns. Codenamed Operation HUSKY, the Allied assault on Sicily on 10 July 1943 remains the largest amphibious invasion ever mounted in world history, landing more men in a single day than at any other time. That day, over 160,000 British, American and Canadian troops were dropped from the sky or came ashore, more than on D-Day just under a year later. It was also preceded by an air campaign that marked a new direction and dominance of the skies by Allies. The subsequent thirty-eight-day Battle for Sicily was one of the most dramatic of the entire Second World War, involving daring raids by special forces, deals with the Mafia, attacks across mosquito-infested plains and perilous assaults up almost sheer faces of rock and scree. It was a brutal campaign - the violence was extreme, the heat unbearable, the stench of rotting corpses intense and all-pervasive, the problems of malaria, dysentery and other diseases a constant plague. And all while trying to fight a way across an island of limited infrastructure and unforgiving landscape, and against a German foe who would not give up. It also signalled the beginning of the end of the War in the West. From here on, Italy ceased to participate in the war, the noose began to close around the neck of Nazi Germany, and the coalition between the United States and Britain came of age. Most crucially, it would be a critical learning exercise before Operation OVERLORD, the Allied invasion of Normandy, in June 1944. Based on his own battlefield studies in Sicily and on much new research over the past thirty years, James Holland's SICILY '43 offers a vital new perspective on a major turning point in World War II. It is a timely, powerful and dramatic account by a master military historian and will fill a major gap in the narrative history of the Second World War. © James Holland 2020 (P) Penguin Audio 2020

Liberia & the Quest for Freedom: The Half That’s Never Been Told Audiobook

Liberia & the Quest for Freedom: The Half That’s Never Been Told

Author: C. Patrick Burrowes Narrator: C. Patrick Burrowes Release Date: August 2020

Africa’s past and present are deeply influence by the capture and selling of millions of its people over several centuries. To a greater extent, that is true for Liberia, a country to which blacks from the Americas returned. Like Liberia’s recent civil war, the trans-Atlantic slave trade inflicted pains, traumas and losses that cannot be ignored out of existence. Driven beneath the surface, they corrode our conscience and erode our humanity. By pretending they did not happen, we destroy our ability to tell right from wrong, victims from villains. Echoes of the slavery era can be heard in the derogatory names we call each other like “Gio,” “Belle,” and “ex-slaves.” Liberians living today are called upon to build peace by doing away with relations of great inequality. They have no better examples than the first generation of Liberians, both repatriates and indigenous, who worked together to do just that.

African Mythology: Culture, History, and Mythological Folklore Audiobook

African Mythology: Culture, History, and Mythological Folklore

Author: James Rooks Narrator: Brandon Sukhu Release Date: August 2020

The Africans have a long history, although not everything has been preserved in writing. And many folklore stories have been passed on through generations. The African tribes vary as much as the colors of the rainbow.   It is for these reasons, and entertainment as well, that this book has been put together. It entails several mythological tales that refer to African gods, creatures, and entities. Some of these have morals. Others are symbolic of one thing or another.   All in all, this is a short but fun and intriguing book about African culture and ancient religions from that region.

Kingdom of Kush: The Civilization of Ancient Nubia Audiobook

Kingdom of Kush: The Civilization of Ancient Nubia

Author: History Titans Narrator: Doug Mcdonald Release Date: August 2020

The Kingdom of Kush and the ancient Nubian civilization, in general, are important not only for their achievements but also for what these achievements represent in the abstract. The existence of such civilizations challenges many traditional, Eurocentric views of the world and its history. Of course, ancient Egypt is impressive enough on its own, but Nubia is even further south and further away from European influence and, in that sense, more African. Neighboring Ethiopia and numerous other locales in Africa were home to other civilizations that have seen their share of success too, so Nubia and its Kingdom of Kush are not alone in that sense. Overall, Africa is a fascinating place to study from the standpoint of scholars from all sorts of backgrounds and sciences. After all, Africa is where mankind originates, so its heritage is something that's important for all of humanity to study.
