    This was a very interesting read; especially for anyone interested in anthropology or historical customs. It is an ancient travelogue of a guy named Ibn Battuta. He traveled around the Middle East, Asia Minor, India, and Africa for 29 years! During this time, the majority of the people in these places were Muslim, and this common cultural element is what enabled Ibn Battuta free reign to travel where he pleased. He would stay in places for a few days or a few months. Everywhere he went, he wrote about his activities, people's customs, and his thoughts about what he saw. From the introduction, it sounds like he wrote about all of his travels, but this book only covers his travels across Africa specifically down the eastern coast along the Indian Ocean, and across the western Sahara. This is not a modern travelogue, so there are portions that are somewhat dry. However, it's also a very fast read and has a lot of fascinating details. It's also a short read. The tale itself is only 75 pages long, with the rest of the book being footnotes and appendixes.

    The Muslim world of the 14th century, just like the Roman world of the 2nd century AD or the world of the Fertile Crescent Civilizations 3000 1000 BC, was pretty much just like ours in the ways that count.The realm of Islam covered much of the known world in the 14th century. Some people traveled around it just for the sake of experience and such, like this guy. He was from Morocco, and made it as far as China, Europe, and Sub Saharan Africa, this last one being the journey chronicled in this book. Africa had large, rich, and stable kingdoms along the coasts, which grew prosperous by mediating trade between the people living in the interior and traders from far away, Muslims, Europeans and others. Ibn Battuta's account makes it clear that there was no racism of the kind we in the West have come to know so well back then, although there was plenty of pettiness and accusations of provincialism leveled at anyplace that was not Mecca or Medina. There was certainly slavery, but crucially, it was not identified with race.Pretty interesting book to read, since it is so easy to see oneself as living in those times. I feel like anything that can shake us out of our lazy, complacent ethnocentrism and superior attitudes can only be a good thing. Revealing the past for what it is the present of people who lived before can only make us aware of our own mortality, fallibility, and profound unremarkable ness. Our present will be judged by the people who come after us, and have no doubt, they will not think us brilliant for spending all our time figuring out how to "make the economy grow" while destroying the planet that sustains us all at an ever increasing rate. If we don't fuck up so bad there is no "intelligent" life to judge us at all, that is.On a totally unrelated note: there are color photos of Russia from over 100 years ago that are a life changing experience, something that will play with your head and leave you unable to think of the past as "The Past" ever again. A number of them are here: the Library of Congress has the collection in its entirety, thousands of pictures and negatives.

    Interesting read but was a bit bland at times. Battuta sometimes makes comments which would be distasteful to modern readers.

    Extremely interesting first documented report by a traveler in Western and Eastern Africa. It provides a rare non racist and non european insight to the cultures and realities of Mali and the Swahili coast 700 years ago. Especially interesting if the reader has some degree of relationship or affinity with the continent.

    Ibn Battuta (which means 'son of Battuta') is a Moroccan Muslim scholar and traveler who visited many different parts of globe, specifically the Muslim world in the 1300s during its sunshiny Golden Age. Ibn Battuta’s sentiments and opinions towards many aspects of black culture and leadership were often shaped by his religious knowledge about prayers, generosity, modes of dress, and the treatment of rulers which makes it a work addressed specifically to Muslims, although it is interesting and insightful enough to be read by everyone. His list of ‘good’ qualities and ‘bad’ qualities which he found specifically in the Malli kingdom during the reign of Mansa Suleiman was sculpted by his background knowledge as an Islamic learner and scholar. Among the good qualities he observed, for example, were the prevalence of peace in their country, the meticulous observance of the prayers and the memorization of the Quran by heart. On the other hand, the qualities Ibn Battuta did not like, were the ways that slave girls dressed or rather, did not dress at all and the practice of eating animals (that was not prescribed in the Quran to eat) and the practice of dusting one’s head in front of the Mansa (ruler). On many occasions, he had a laughable amount of self esteem which prompted him to deliberately expect a certain degree of hospitality. When he did receive that, he would praise the (black) person profusely. Hence, most of the practices that Ibn Battuta expressed distaste for, fundamentally refuted Islamic teachings, while practices for which he expressed adoration and amazement, are in sync with the teachings of his religion or his Arab culture. He was a curious observant man, and this book reveals a lot about Islam in Africa during the 1300s, including trade, culture, food, clothing, entertainment e.c.t. I also personally would like to do research about slavery that existed in Africa at this time.

    "The reason he was not eaten by the unbelievers was his whiteness for they say that eating a white man is harmful because he is not ripe. The black man however is ripe according to them. It was mentioned to me that the tastiest meat in the flesh of women is in the palm and the breast." (62)

    I really enjoyed this book. I wish it had been longer, though. It is fascinating to see how societies incorporated Islam beliefs in to their cultures.
