Scope Norman R. Bennett was the founder and guiding force behind the journal’s growth from its first incarnation as African Historical Studies in 1968 and remained its editor for more than thirty years. The title was expanded to the International Journal of African Historical Studies in 1972, when Africana Publishers/ Holmes and Meier took over publication and distribution for the next decade. Beginning in 1982, the African Studies Center once again assumed full responsibility for production and distribution. (source)
