PCS member Alistair McCleery, Professor of Literature and Culture at Edinburgh Napier University, has written a 35-page illustrated essay which covers the conception and birth of the West African Series. He then concentrates on the rationale behind the start of the Penguin African Library, its subsequent development and eventual demise associated with the educational link with Longmans.

The second part of the book contains a bibliography of each series and images of every book in the two series.
