I rate this a 4 star because of its contents in addressing as aspect of scholarship on Africa that is often neglected or insufficiently discussed. I like the detailed approach taken which demystifies the European colonial farce of portraying Islam as the ideal for Africa, and the tactical concealment of the atrocities committed in spreading 'Arab Culture' in the continent, particularly in areas where Britain established her colonies and promoted these views: Sudan, Nigeria etc.

Excellent, well sourced and researched (provides references and sources for all claims) assessment of Islam in Africa.

This book is an essential for everyone to read, written by a PhD graduate and Professor of world Islam, it provides objective criticism of Islam's role in Africa backed up all throughout the book with sources.

It's interesting to see how much the Islamic world tried to bury it's crimes and has no interest in teaching its youth on the crimes of it's past. A sharp contrast compared to the western schooling system where we are told purely about the European/American (Trans-Atlantic) slave trade and our own nations crimes of past.

The horrific truth about the Arab-Islam slave trade should be taught in all Western Schools to give a balanced view on slavery in Africa. We are letting down our children by simply teaching them one-sided view on a slave trade which we abolished a long time ago compared to the IIslamic slave trade which still continues today.

Well worth buying and reading.

Having been raised in a culture where self scrutiny along with condemnation of historical faults has been part of my upbringing and education - I am a white European, with an American citizenship, it is quite baffling to all of a sudden discover that history really does have surprises in store for all of us.
Having been reminded more than once of my "slave owner ancestry", by way of my genes and the colur of my skin alone, it makes me proud all of a sudden, that "we", the courageous ones who dared have a critical look at what our cultures onces did, - and made an attempt to learn a better way. It must have taken courage to let out all that shame, - and now, it is the choice of other cultures and continents, to see if they can or will try the same.
An informative book.

Detailed and objectively explains the historical context to Arab/Islam contact with Africa. This book does not gloss over the details and pro Islamist may find some uncomfortable facts hitherto largely not discussed.

A book that I would certainly recommend to readers looking to find greater clarity on the issue of Islam in Africa.
