Summary
"Examining Islamization, Arabization, Africanization and the Muslim societies of Africa over the last thousand years, David Robinson reveals the complex struggles of Muslims throughout the continent. His study ranges through Morocco, the Hausaland region of Nigeria, the "pagan" societies of Ashanti (Ghana) and Buganda (Uganda), and the ostensibly Christian state of Ethiopia."
