“Beyond Timbuktu is part of the resurgent interest in African
intellectual history. This book is an important contribution to the
field, as it ties trends in Muslim West African thought to the
development and role of Islamic education in precolonial,
colonial, and postcolonial Muslim West African societies.” Jennifer
