?Finely written and researched. . . . This edition will no doubt whet the appetites of a fresh generation of scholars and students for greater knowledge of parts of Africa still surprisingly little known to the outside world.??Journal of Islamic Studies ?Bovill is a gifted teller of tales. . . . It is a delightfully written and well-organized account of a vast and neglected field of history . . . a unique source book on Saharan trade routes, caravan organization and Sudanese history. . . . Mr. Bovill not only reveals a firm grasp of history but of anthropology and economic geography.??New York Times?An utterly enthralling, scholarly study . . . very blunt about all the hot little towns, sharp traders and the brutal rulers who figure in this book?but Bovill?s truths turn out to be splendidly romantic.??The New Yorker?Bovill writes, as a historian, of the Sahara?s golden age, threading his way clearly and with learning through a maze of Berber and Sudanese dynasties.??SpectatorThe late Edward William Bovill was a historian and author of numerous books. Robert O. Collins, University of California, provides a new introduction and a new bibliographical essay for this edition.
