Title: Arabic Literature of Africa, Volume 2 The Writings of Central Sudanic Africa
Edited By: J.O. Hunwick
R.S. O'Fahey
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=2694
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 1: The Near and Middle East 13
Description:

The second volume of Arabic Literature of Africa (of which six volumes are
planned) deals with the literature of Central Sudanic Africa, i.e. the area
lying between the present Republic of the Sudan and Mali.

The bulk of the work concerns Nigeria, which has produced a voluminous and
varied Arabic-Islamic literature. The smaller and less studied Arabic
literature traditions of Chad, Cameroun and Niger are also examined.
The work is arranged both chronologically and by sub-region, and writers
have been grouped within chapters according to their scholarly and
religious affiliations. Full details are given of known manuscripts,
published editions and translations. There are indexes of titles, authors,
first lines of poetry and a general index. An initial overview and chapter
introductions provide an outline intellectual history.
