This interpretation of the impact of slavery on African life
emphasizes the importance of external demand for slaves by
Occidental and Oriental purchasers in developing an active trade in
slaves within Africa. The book summarizes a wide range of recent
literature on slavery for all of tropical Africa. It analyzes the
demography, economics, social structure and ideology of slavery in
Africa from the beginning of large-scale slave exports in the
seventeenth century to the gradual elimination of slavery in the
twentieth century. While primarily a general survey, Dr. Manning
presents original research and analysis, especially in his
demographic model, computer simulation of slave trade and analysis
of slave prices. By revealing clearly the succession of
transformations which slavery brought throughout the African
continent, the book shows in new depth the place of Africa in the
history of the Atlantic basin, of western Asia and North Africa,
and of the Indian Ocean.
