Abstract:

Presents the celebrated classic that addresses a critical contemporary issue--the collision of Islamic African values and Western culture. Tells the tale of young Samba Diallo, a devout pupil in a Koranic religious school in Senegal whose parents send him to Paris to study philosophy. Unknown to Samba, it is his family's desperate attempt to better understand the French colonial forces transforming their traditional way of life. But for Samba, it's an exciting adventure, and once in France he excels at his new studies and is delighted by both the French language and his new 'marvelous comprehension and total communion' with the Western world.
