we need this book. Of course Africa needs it as well, because no other huge area of the planet is treated as such a singular region, and that has to change. But the rest of the planet needs It's a Continent because we miss out by not recognising the individual majesty, the complexity, the beauty, the culture and the stories of the dozens of African countries.

We owe it to ourselves and our history to put that right.' - Simon Reeve Why is Africa still perceived as a single country?How did African soldiers contribute to World War II?Who else led the charge against Apartheid in South Africa?How did an African man become one of the wealthiest people in history?There are (hi)stories you were never taught in school. IT'S A CONTINENT delves into these stories and reveals an Africa as you've never read it before. Breaking down this vast, beautiful, and complex continent and exploring each nations' unique history and culture, IT'S A CONTINENT highlights the key historical moments that have shaped each nation and contributed to its modern global position.

Each chapter focuses on a different country and uncovers stories that mainstream education doesn't address at its peril. This book shows the reader the consequences of colonialism and how this legacy reverberates today as well as how many African countries continue to re-build in its wake. IT'S A CONTINENT is a bold and colourful corrective to the perception of Africa as a monolith.

It reveals the fascinating, often overlooked, histories of its 54 nation states too often misrepresented, its inhabitants and its place in the world too often neglected.
