Review:

"[A]n essential source for the study of the reception of Ouologuem ...[T]he concluding accounts of Wise's own research in the field make this volume indispensable for future discussion of Ouologuem and open the path for innovative in vivo research into African writing."-- George Lang, Research in African Literatures
"By going through the text's frequent Arabic references, Wise has produced a mind-expanding reading of [The Duty of Violence] as a tale about the suffering of the negraille ["black-rabble"]- at the hands of their African oppressors."   --Harold Braswell, The New Republic
   

"Wise renders an important service by bringing together a dozen articles and several recent interviews on the work of this Malian (West African) francophone...  Recommended for all college and university collections supporting studies of African, African American, and postcolonial literature." -- K. Tölöyan, Choice

"With this book, Wise wanted to locate Ouologuem's reception more squarely within the context of African concerns, sweeping aside the concerns of European critics. He has done this to an impressive degree ..." -- Robert P. Smith, World Literature Today

"Not only does Wise allow the veteran scholar as well as the student a wide sampling of essays to review, but he also encourages both types of reader to ponder different perspectives."-- Glen Bush, African Studies Review
