Booklist Review

New edition of a title last published in 1999. A record of rulers in both contemporary nation-states and ancient tribal kingdoms, the book has been updated to reflect changes occurring through late summer 2005. Content is organized by state, and each entry contains a history, followed by an exhaustive list of rulers. The volume continues to be the most in-depth treatment of Africa's changing political boundaries and heads of state. --Mary Ellen Quinn Copyright 2006 Booklist
