... by far the most complete attempt at covering the history of Islam in Africa up to the present ... There can be no doubt that this volume will become a standard textbook for undergraduates and a frequent reference work for scholars. - S.V. Ricard in ISLAM & CHRISTIAN-MUSLIM RELATIONS ...massive and marvellous synthesis...that will be both accessible and useful to general readers and scholars. ... The editors and contributors deserve high praise for this achievement. All levels. - J.A. Works in CHOICE ... the spacious layout and considerable length of each of its twenty four chapters make it pleasant to use. The way the book has been put together clearly reveals it is intended as a teaching aid ... This work rests on solid foundations, due to the authority of the authors as much as the documentation and bibliography it provides. It fulfils its objective of being a guide for students and others who want a reference volume that addresses both general and local issues in the Africa of Islam - Constant Hames in AFRICAN AFFAIRS
