This book offers the reader the first modern history of Borno, drawing upon sources in London, Berlin, Paris, Kaduna and Maiduguri and recently released ‘migrated archives’.As its longevity suggests, what is particularly remarkable about Borno is the permanence of its boundaries—its territorial integrity—which dates back centuries, and the political and social identities that such borders framed in the minds of its inhabitants.
