This difference in emphasis should not be taken to mean that the Shari'a was entirely inconsequen-tial in East Africa, or that the Sufi sects', tariqas, had no following in West Africa.   In this interview, we explore the early history of Islam in West Africa with Professor Ousmane Kane, who has mapped out the networks of Islamic learning in the region. We discuss intellectual history, the curricula of madrasas and a day in the life of a 16th-century student in Sankore.
