MEDIA REVIEWS
This Festschrift, in honor of one of Africa's lustrous and respected scholars, is the epitome of the academic pursuits of Professor Sulayman S. Nyang. Professor Nyang is considered an astute diplomat, a scholar, a peacebuilder, and a humanist who invariably urge African leaders to be serious and sincere about the state of human rights, peace, and development in their countries. -- Getachew Metaferia, Professor of Political Science, Morgan State University Baltimore, Maryland
This book, at once a celebration of and a testimonial to Professor Nyang's contributions to scholarship, examines more than four decades of his rigorous intellectual exertions on four subjects, namely, Africa and its people; Islam and Islamic philosophy; Inter-faith dialogue; and issues of justice and the wellbeing of humanity. The assembled scholars interrogated, dissected and provided further elucidation of the four cardinal subjects that have formed the major pillars of Professor Nyang's scholarship. This book comes highly recommended. -- W. Alade Fawole, Professor of International Relations, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria.
This book in honor of Sulayman Nyang, a renown Africanist, is a compendium of the cream of scholarship by distinguished academics. It sheds essential intellectual light on the critical issues of the African condition. The chapters cover a wide range of issues like governance, religion, terrorism and political integration. While most of the past intellectual reflections on these issues have employed externally derived paradigms, the present volume is an objective critical explanation from within. This book will be highly rewarding to read. -- John A.A Ayoade, Emeritus Professor of Political Science, University of Ibadan, Nigeria.
