‼ Read Hardcover @The Royal Kingdoms of Ghana, Mali, and Songhay: Life in Medieval Africa ⁗ Kindle By Patricia McKissack ₋ ‼ Read Hardcover @The Royal Kingdoms of Ghana, Mali, and Songhay: Life in Medieval Africa ⁗ Kindle By Patricia McKissack ₋ The McKissacks Sojourner Truth Ain t I a Woman continue to illuminate aspects of African American heritage with this introduction to three major kingdoms of medieval Africa Ghana, Mali and Songhay Based on folklore, contemporaneous accounts and modern scholarly research, their discussion covers the origins, customs, people and political history of these civilizations, which flourished from approximately A.D 500 to 1700 but which until recently have been neglected by historians Because much of the available information about medieval Africa is sketchy at best, the narrative is sometimes confusing, especially when the authors combine divergent theories or rely on myth and legend to fill holes in the historical record Still, their volume contains insightful information about an important period in both African and world history and explores such complicated issues as African involvement in the slave trade and the role of religion in establishing, shaping and destroying bygone kingdoms A timeline, notes and extensive bibliography encourage further reading Ages 10 14 Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.Grade 5 7 The McKissacks describe the West African civilizations that flourished between the years 700 C.E to 1700 C.E A chronological account is given of each successive kingdom, and there is also substantial information about the social history of Mali and Songhay, e.g., education, the treatment of women, religion, and arts and crafts The relationship between Islam and politics, and the interplay between traditional and Islamic customs in Mali and Songhay are highlighted The authors have attempted something unique with their inclusion of indigenous and contemporaneous historical accounts by such historians as Leo Africanus and Ibn Battuta , as well as in their substantial use of oral history While this makes for an interesting perspective, it prevents the line between history and mythology from being clearly drawn For example, in the story of Sundiata, visits from a powerful king in the magical form of an owl are not distinguished from the factual dates that Sundiata ruled Mali This might limit the usefulness of the book to situations in which adults are able to help students think critically about the text Adequate but uninspired photographs of ancient artifacts and modern people with traditional life styles illustrate the text Unfortunately, the maps do not make clear the geographical relationships among the three kingdoms they existed at different times, and in each case the territory of the earlier kingdom was wholly or partly subsumed under the later kingdom The helpful notes discuss the validity of certain bibliographical sources The informative time line links events in Africa to those in other parts of the world, and the bibliography is impressive In spite of its limitations, this title will be an important addition to most collections.Susan Giffard, Midtown Ethical Culture School, New York CityCopyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc.
