“Timbuktu is famous as a great center of Muslim
learning from Islam’s Golden Age. Beyond Timbuktu charts the
rise of Muslim learning in West Africa from the beginning of Islam
to the present day, examining the shifting contexts that have
influenced the production and dissemination of Islamic knowledge
– and shaped the sometimes conflicting interpretations of Muslim
intellectuals – over the course of centuries.”
