Basil DavidsonBasil Risbridger Davidson MC (9 November 1914 – 9 July 2010) was a British journalist, writer and historian who wrote particularly on African history and politics. According to two modern writers, "Davidson, a campaigning journalist whose first of many books on African history and politics appeared in 1956, remains perhaps the single-most effective disseminator of the new field to a popular international audience".
He wrote several books on the current situation of Africa. Colonialism and the rise of African emancipation movements were central themes of his work. He was an Honorary Fellow of the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London. Provided by Wikipedia
