Pride, Faith, and Fear

Islam in Sub-Saharan Africa

Charlotte A. Quinn and Frederick Quinn

The worldwide Islamic revival is working important changes in both government and society in Africa. As yet, however, this powerful international movement has received little scholarly attention in its African setting. The authors draw on extensive fieldwork as well as primary and secondary sources to analyze the role of Islam in sub-Saharan Africa, with particular emphasis on its importance in 20th-century African politics.
