Hoping that it will illustrate not just the impact of Islam upon Africa but also the impact of Africa on Muslim history, this volume focuses on how the number of Muslims in Africa has grown rapidly within the post–World War II era and how Islam has radically transformed the political, social, and religious structures of the country. Starting with the penetration of the continent in the seventh century, this collection also documents the spread of Islam prior to World War II.
