and strongly recommended essays will provide them with exceptionallyimportant insights into the political and religious issues inthe Sudan. . . . Intriguing comparisons and analysis.??Midwest Book ReviewThis collection of essays offers a new paradigm, in which the trans-Saharan and trans-Atlantic worlds of slavery are brought into focus under the same lens. While slave studies have considered either trans-Atlantic slavery in the world of Islam, rarely has any study combined the enslavement of Africans in America and the Lands of Islam in one volume. Both the Saharan and the Atlantic worlds drew upon the western and central Sudan for the enslaved population that was imported, but in general the two markets for slaves have been treated in isolation and without reference to the common bond of Islam and the multiple roles that Islam has played in the history of slavery, whether in West Africa itself, the Americas, or the Islamic Mediterranean. Western Africa served as the point of dispersion across desert and sea , but it was also the final destination of many of those who were enslaved but who were not transported across the Atlantic or the Sahara. Enslaved Muslims and non-Muslims who were brought into the world of Islam re-enforced or invented cultural features that were central to their identities as people from the central Sudan.PAUL E. LOVEJOY, York University, is author of Transformations inSlavery: A History of Slavery in Africa and co-editor of The Biography of Mohammah Gardo Baquaqua.
