By contrast to the situation in Europe, many states in West Africa in the 15 th century were in a process of expansion and growth. Mossi was established in the 15 th century in Burkina Faso, Kano became a major power, and Songhay rose to usurp the power of the Mali Empire.

INTRODUCTION What caused Africa‘s underdevelopment is a complex issue. Europe‘s past (and present) exploitation of Africa played a significant part.
