Students and the general reader will find this a fascinating overview of a neglected area of art history. Garlake (formerly U. of Ife, Nigeria, he has done archaeology in various parts of Africa, and now studies rock art in Zimbabwe) displays great familiarity with a broad scope of African art, frequently citing recent archaeological finds within his discussion. The text is organized geographically (North Africa and ancient Egypt are omitted) and covers a time period from prehistory to c.1500. Annotation c. Book News, Inc.,Portland, OR
