20 top books about Africa, including both fiction and nonfiction. In the 19 th century, as the nations of Europe rushed to grab ever-larger expanses of territory there, Africa was known as the Dark Continent. In some ways, that label is still apt. Everywhere else—Europe, Asia, the Americas—understanding of Africa and Africans is limited, and far too often wildly distorted. Our experts have chosen the best African novels, fiction and literature as well as African history and works on leading African figures. Some African book recommendation lists are country specific and some based on the continent. We have thought provoking African non-fiction recommendations, including on history and Africa economics.
