Studies on Fulbe Ladde Soro: Analytical Review of Major Perspectives

Emeka Peter Aniago


This study critically examines available literature on soro starting with the earliest publication to the most recent literature accessible, to underscore the level of growth in soro scholarship, the existing gaps and instances of convergence in analysis in studies under-review. It analytically reviews all available data in order to highlight major contributions from each in appreciating the growth of scholarship on the soro. As part of this review, the scholarly strength of the studies will be determined by evaluating the research process adopted, the academic background of the authors, and how the authors’ perspectives may have influenced their conclusions. An analytical review of this nature will provide a concise but detailed catalog of adequate scholarly materials currently available for the study of soro, that can provide a baseline for further research into this subject and related forms within the genre.
