Read full description of the books:Ségou is de hoofdstad van een machtig rijk in Noordwest-Afrika. De burgers genieten hun voorrechten als heersers over vele volkeren. Totdat midden vorige eeuw vanuit het noorden de roep naar Allah doorklinkt en de eerste blanke zich voor de poorten van Ségou aandient. De priesters duiden de tekens: niets zal meer zijn zoals het was...Met dit monumentale epos over de ondergang van Ségou schildert Maryse Condé op grootse wijze de tragiek van Afrika.
