Gomez, Michael A., Anderson, David, Brown, Carolyn


Drawing upon a wide range of sources, both oral and documentary, Arabic, English and French, this is the first full account of Bundu, a precolonial West African state, from 1698 to 1905. It was founded during the jihads which swept the savannah in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and the pragmatic policy of its ruler Malik Sy which tolerated diverse religious and social practices was unique in the midst of fundamentalist, theocratic Muslim states. Bundu played a critical role in regional commerce and production and reacted quickly to the stimulus of European trade.Gomez, Michael A. is the author of 'Pragmatism in the Age of Jihad' with ISBN 9780521528474 and ISBN 052152847X.
