'Through an intelligent and judicious use of a wide variety of relevant sources, Wright has produced a fine work of scholarly synthesis that constitutes a solid contribution to the literature on the rise and demise of the slave trade in a part of Africa that has long been neglected by specialists in the field. Thus he has successfully-and literally-breached the world of the Sahara as an ecological and academic terra incognita' - Hussein Ahmed, Addis Ababa University, Journal of Islamic Studies 2009
