This sequel to Segu concerns the 19th-century tribal wars, Islamic conquest and French occupation of the African kingdom, focusing on characters with kinship bonds to the Traore family. ''Male characters supply the dominant points of views; women are seen as objects. Exhaustive scholarship . . . suffocates the narrative,'' PW complained.
