Product Overview

Revealing a community of diversity in 1950s South Africa, this innovative study introduces readers to the linguistic, religious, and cultural world of the Arabic Study Circle, formed in the port city of Durban. The men who led the association were middle class Indian Muslims, speaking Gujurati, who came together to search for meaning and authenticity through reading and conversation. This book provides an intimate sense of who these men were, how they operated, and their international connections and contexts.
