This bibliography of printed sources and e-resources available at Columbia University provides a foundation for attaining a scholarly understanding of the relationship between cartographic and modern political history of Africa, especially in the Senegambian region, the Niger valley, and the Nile valley from around the 14th century to the early 21st century CE. Book chapters and journal articles are not included. The list supports an interdisciplinary approach to the history of cartography, Western imperialism, and geographical boundaries as they relate to West and East-Central Africa. It highlights works on African, Arab, and European concepts of "mapping" , along with a general history of the modern geography of Africa.
