This is a detailed study of Muslim holymen in the north central Sudan and the role they played in the cultural and social transformation of that region. Making extensive use of oral and written data gathered in the field, as well as many neglected Sudanese authors and Islamic sources, McHugh examines the changing role of the holymen in the face of declining indigenous political institutions and the advent and consolidation of colonial rule.
