Summary

This book is a study of the West African chronicle known as the Tārīkh al-fattāsh (The Chronicle of the Inquisitive Researcher) and its role in advancing a political project, the legitimation of the Caliphate of Ḥamdallāhi (1818–1862), located in what is now the Republic of Mali. In reconstructing this story, I have brought together two bodies of literature that have often crossed paths, but whose relationship has not been fully explored until now. The first is the critical scholarship produced over the past hundred years or more on the Tārīkh al-fattāsh.
