Reviews of Shaihu Umar: A Novel About Slavery in Africa

“With excellent introductions and explanatory notes, Balewa’s novella offers the kind of insights into another culture that world historians seek to provide [to] their students. The book’s historical purpose and cultural setting are accessible for students … an example of the best that publishers can offer … This new edition offers great prospects for success with undergraduates.” — Journal of World History
