Description


This book examines a series of processes (Islamization, Arabization, Africanization) and case studies from the Muslim societies of Africa over the last thousand years. In contrast to traditions suggesting that Islam did not take root in Africa, David Robinson depicts the complex struggles of Muslims throughout the continent: in Morocco and the Hausaland region of Nigeria; the pagan societies of Ashanti (Ghana) and Buganda (Uganda); and the ostensibly Christian state of Ethiopia. Further reading sections suggest how undergraduate readers can pursue research, and illustrations and maps supplement the text.
