Through Arabic transcriptions, English translations, line-drawing reconstructions, and plate illustrations, this volume catalogs the large number of eleventh-fifteenth century Arabic-Islamic inscriptions from the Republic of Mali. Moraes Farias reinterprets West African chronicles and oral traditions and demonstrates that the Tuareg and Songhay, peoples divided by civil war in the 1990s, share a composite history.

Review:

`[Farias's] method is broadly inclusive in all its aspects, and effectively anticipates just about any question a reader might bring to it.'
David Henige, History in Africa

This book is unquestionably a masterpiece... This study is unique and its value and stature will surely grow and achieve a classic status in the years ahead.

`[This] superb book ... illustrates wonderfully the multiplicity and the depth of Dr. Moraes Farias's talents, his erudition and his rigour.'
Abdel Wedoud Ould Cheikh, Journal of African History

`This book is the brilliant achievement of over 30 years meticulous scholarship. It is carefully edited and contains Arabic transcriptions and English translations of 250 inscriptions, most of which are reproduced as plates and/or line drawings and have never been published before.'
Richard Kuba, Journal of African Archaeology
