The Bradt Travel Guide to Senegal

Every once in a while, someone will contact me to ask me to contribute to a non-academic project. As an academic ensconced in my ivory tower, isolated in a gated campus on a ridge at the edge of a mountain resort (see my page on Ifrane), I always relish to opportunity to make myself relevant to a wider, non-specialist public.

Last year, author Sean Connolly asked me to contribute to a guide-book on Senegal. I am delighted to announce that this travel guide has just been released.

Bradt's Travel Guide to Senegal, by Sean Connolly, was released in November 2015.

Bradt’s new travel guide for Senegal is the most thorough English-language travel guide to the country. In keeping with Bradt’s comprehensive, multifaceted approach to travel and tourism, the Senegal guide provides an overview of the country’s geography, history, culture and environment, as well as the usual practical information for travelers. I contributed short inserts on Sufism and on the city of Touba. I advise any traveler heading to Senegal to consult the Bradt Travel Guide, as well as my general-readership book on the Culture and Customs of Senegal.
