Book Summary:
This study explores the history of trans-Saharan trade in western Africa in the nineteenth century. It documents the internal dynamics of a trade network system based on a case study of the Wad Nun traders, who specialized in outfitting camel caravans in this period. Through an examination of original source material, Lydon shows how traders used their literacy skills and recourse to experts of Islamic law to regulate long-distance transactions.
