The Oxford Research Encyclopedia of African History will cover the entire range and sweep of African history, from the earliest stone tool–using hominids to the most recent religious movements, or from new interpretations of the Mau Mau movement in Kenya to recent reconsideration of the Rwanda genocide and its aftermath. By offering students and scholars a dynamic, engaging, and continually expanding reference work, our aim is nothing less than to make the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of African History a model for encyclopedias in the digital age.
