About this product
- DescriptionAcclaimed historian Natalie Zemon Davis's accessible and dramatic biography was widely hailed as a masterpiece and tells the story of Leo Africanus, a sixteenth-century Moroccan who embodies the rich and complex exchanges between Europe and Africa during the Renaissance. Trickster Travels offers a virtuoso study of the fragmentary, partial and often contradictory traces that al-Hasan al-Wazzan left behind him, and is a superb interpretation of his extraordinary life and work.
- Author BiographyNatalie Zemon Davis is Henry Charles Lea Professor of History Emeritus at Princeton University. Her books include The Return of Martin Guerre which was made into two hugely successful movies and which pioneered a new kind of historical writing. She lives in Toronto, Canada.
