Gustav Nachtigal is a major source for many aspects of African studies in the area today covered by Libya, Chad, Niger, Nigeria, and Sudan.
Allan G. Fisher and Humphrey J. Fisher who have prepared this translation were both born in New Zealand. Allan Fisher studied at Melbourne and later taught at the Universities of Otago and Western Australia. He came to England as Price Professor of International Economics at the Royal Institute of International Affairs, London in 1937. Later, he joined the International Monetary Fund, becoming Chief Editor. His son, Humphrey Fisher, studied at Harvard and Oxford and completed the task of finishing the translation after his father's death.
"Gustav Nachtigal ranks among the greatest of African travelers by reason of the range, accuracy, and indeed the minuteness of his observations and for the sympathy he displayed toward those among whom he traveled. He is a major, and in some areas, the major source for the history of the Central Sudanic Belt."
--International Journal of Middle Eastern Studies
