Abstract:Studies a reform movement in Futa Toro, the middle valley of the Senegal river, which took power in the late eighteenth century. Emphasis lies on the role of the torodbe. The torodbe ('beggars of alms') is the division of the Tokolor, the inhabitants of Futa Toro, which formed the leadership and much of the membership of the reform movement and which became the ruling class of the Almamate. Notes, table.
