About the Author

Roman Loimeier is Professor at the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of G ttingen. He is author of Muslim Societies in Africa: A Historical Anthropology (2013), Between Social Skills and Marketable Skills: The Politics of Islamic Education in 20th Century Zanzibar (2009) and Islamic Reform and Political Change in Northern Nigeria (1997, second edition 2011).


"The book is a comprehensive comparative depiction of Islamic reform movements in Africa in historical perspective. Loimeier compellingly demonstrates the complexity and diversity of these movements, subtly analysing the dialectical interaction of international currents and local contexts. This is a tour de force, remarkable for both its breadth and depth." -- Robert Launay, Northwestern University

"A result of three decades of fieldwork and travels throughout Africa, [this book] boasts an extensive bibliography and index, and will probably come to be regarded as a reference book for understanding Sufi- and Salafi-oriented and jihad-minded reform movements in the multi-ethnic and multireligious societies of the African continent."-- Heinrich Bergstresser, Africa Spectrum
