State, Society and Islam in the Western Regions of the Sahara

Regional Interactions and Social Change

«Overall, the collection constitutes a major contribution to the study of this part of the African continent. The authors are much more concerned with empirical richness and nuanced approaches to concepts than they are with extracting universalistic theoretical observations, and so readers looking for the latter will have to do much of that intellectual labor themselves. Nevertheless, the volume lends itself to such labor – this sub-region is far from the only corner of the world where pseudo-democratic states project power but also find their power has limits; where hierarchical societies are experiencing flux and contention; whether deeply rooted religiosities prove dynamic amid internal and external forces; and where all three of these trends interact in consequential ways.»

Mediterranean Politics

«This splendidly interdisciplinary and engagingly written book is a powerful contribution to a new understanding of Saharan modes of cultural change and continuity. Its brilliantly researched case studies, and insightful Introduction and Postscript, dispel diehard stereotypes of “immemorial” patterns and abrupt ruptures, and disclose innovation and transformational reappropriations of tradition.»

Paulo Fernando de Moraes Farias, Professor, University of Birmingham, UK
