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