Abstract:The historiography of Islam in Africa came of age during the period 1960-1970. Before 1960 there were no university centers devoted to the study of Islam in Africa; there was only a handful of scholars fully engaged in Islamic studies, and of these very few trained in the historical discipline. In the last decade several prominent centers of African studies have been established, and while a serious shortage of Arabian-historians continues, it is encouraging to note that each of these centers has placed high priority upon the acquisition of scholars in African Islamic studies.
