In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

x ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The completion ofthis project was ftmded by a generous two-year grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, with matching ftmds from the University of Kansas Endowment Association, as well as New Faculty and Graduate Research Awards from the University ofKansas. For all this support we are deeply grateful. In addition, we wish to thank everyone who has helped with the production ofthis work. The problem is how to do this effectively, mindful as we are that scores ofpeople scattered over three continents have lent us their expertise over the last twenty years. To the Waziri ofSokoto, Alhaji Dr. Junaidu, we owe an everlasting debt. He died 9 January 1997,justbefore this book went to press; Allah jiICansa. Amin. Alhaji Muhammadu Maccido, Sarkin Kudun Sokoto did everything possible to facilitate travel and research in Sokoto from 1969-1984; he was reinstated as Sultan of Sokoto on 21 April 1996. We acknowledge as our mentors the two principal scholars involved in the translations, AlKali Sidi Sayucfi, Ubandoman Sokoto, and Alhaji Muhammadu Magaji. Dick Boyd not only typed the manuscript and acted as our editorial consultant but remained cheerful throughout: thank you. To the following individuals, who were most recently involved in responding to our queries, we extend thanks for their generosity: Allan Christelow, the late Mervyn Hiskett (Allah jiICansa. Amin), John Hunwick, Murray Last, David Robinson, Heather Sharkey, and Neil Skinner. Christopher Moore drew the maps. Muhammad Sani Umar provided technical support, and Amy Barnes put it all together for us. We cannot list the names of all those we wish to thank, mainly because we are afraid ofleaving names out inadvertently, ormaking the list too long and unmanageable. But we can think ofno occasion when we have asked for advice, sought accommodation or requested information and been turned away. People have given oftheir time and expertise and what we say to them is what Asma'u herselfmight have said; "Allah shi saka maku da alheri. Amin.
