Students of Mali studies need not worry about paying for over-priced textbooks anymore – renting textbooks is an option! Mali textbooks – for example The Race for Timbuktu: In Search of Africa's City of Gold by [Frank T. Kryza], and Arabic Medieval Inscriptions from the Republic of Mali: Epigraphy, Chronicles, and Songhay-Tuareg History (Fontes Historiae Africanae, New Series: Sources of African History) by [P. F. de Moraes Farias] – are often some of the most frequently updated books by Publishing companies. The field of Mali is constantly changing, and new editions can come yearly and at a huge cost to students who continually buy new books. So why buy when you can rent cheap textbooks? There are plenty of Mali books to rent – BookRenter has of them all!

Used book sales can be a cheap option as well, but often can be more expensive than textbook rentals. However, there are very few return policies with used books, and especially when taking Mali classes, buying a used book can be dangerous and costly.
