Synopsis by Alice Day
Regarded as a huge prize, the continent of Africa was divided up by several European nations, including France, England, Germany, Italy, and Belgium. In Warwick History: The Scramble for Africa, University of Warwick scholars scrutinize the efforts by these countries to colonize Africa and exploit its inhabitants and natural resources. Dr. Iain R. Smith narrates this program, which explains to students how movements against European domination arose in the face of colonization. This series is designed for students in high school and college-level history courses.
