The author looks at the importance of trade routes that linked West Africa, the shifting fortunes of cities and empoires--and the religious and polical struggles of the local cultures with Islam.  The inclusion of a Bibliography that lists many sources most valuable for the study of West African history, and thirty-seven maps make this volume an indispensable work of reference for anyone interested in Africa.
