Professor Jeremy Keenan writes from SOAS London: “… (ref) your book. I must say that it is absolutely superb - a brilliant piece. It really is an excellent - eye-opening - piece of work. And I love the layout - chapter structures, headings and conversations, etc. I cannot praise it too highly. It is without doubt the best work ever written on contemporary Mali. congratulations on a fabulous piece of work.”
