220 pages. Softcover. Brand new book. RELIGION. Examining a series of processes (Islamization, Arabization, Africanization) and case studies from North, West, and East Africa, this book gives snapshots of Muslim societies in Africa over the last 1000+ years. In contrast to traditions that suggest that Africa is not Muslim, or that Islam did not take root in Africa, the author shows the complex struggles of Muslims in the Muslim state of Morocco and in the Hausaland region of Nigeria. He portrays the ways in which Islam was practiced in the "pagan" societies of Ashanti (Ghana) and Buganda (Uganda) and in the ostensibly Christian state of Ethiopia-beginning with the first emigration of Muslims from Mecca in 615 CE, well before the foundational hijira to Medina in 622. Includes an Index. (Key Words: Muslims, Africa, African History, David Robinson, Islamization, Arabization, Africanization, East Africa, Morocco, Hausaland Region, Nigeria, Ashanti, Ghana, Buganda Uganda, Sufism, Slavery, Muhammad, Islam, Dar al-Islam, Arabic, Ethiopia).
