Editorial Reviews

Review

A college-level readership will find these informed, informative, and strongly recommended essays will provide them with exceptionally important insights into the political and religious issues in the Sudan. . . . Intriguing comparisons and analysis." -- Midwest Book Review<br /><br />The purpose of this outgrowth of a larger UNESCO "Nigerian Hinterland and Slave Route" project is to link West African Islamic slavery with Muslim slaves in the Atlantic community. Since Islam created an intellectual and legal universe for slavery, being Muslim was a key cultural ingredient in New World resistance to creolization. These presentations concentrate on the jihadic Muslim world of the 18th and 19th centuries, leading to the creation of the Sokoto Sultanate of Northern Nigeria. Six of the 12 chapters deal with West Africa, two with North Africa, and three with the Caribbean. The authors are a mix of beginning and established scholars, most associated with York University in Canada. Chapters vary in style, format, and applicability to the broader theme based on the approach of the individual author. Each chapter has its own endnotes; the volume concludes with a glossary and an extensive bibliography. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. --Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries, R. T. Brown, formerly, Westfield State College

Format: Hardcover
The high price tag of Slavery On The Frontiers Of Islam will limit its acquisition to all but the most dedicated of multicultural and Islamic Studies collections; but a college-level readership will find these informed, informative, and strongly recommended essays will provide them with exceptionally important insights into the political and religious issues in the Sudan. Slave studies usually consider trans-Atlantic slavery or slavery in Islamic nations as separate phenomenon: compiled and edited by Paul Lovejoy, Slavery On The Frontiers Of Islam deftly incorporates similar questions on each under one cover, and goes on to provide intriguing comparisons and analysis.
