[Parution] Corisandre Fenwick, Early Islamic North Africa. A New Perspective, Bloomsbury, 2021

This volume proposes a new approach to the Arab conquests and the spread of Islam in North Africa.

In North Africa, with continuity came significant change. Corisande Fenwick argues that the establishment of Muslim rule also coincided with a phase of intense urbanization, the appearance of new architectural forms (mosques, housing, hammams), the spread of Muslim social and cultural practices, the introduction of new crops and manufacturing techniques and the establishment of new trading links with sub-Saharan Africa, Europe and the Middle East.
