Transformations in slavery : a history of slavery in Africa by Paul E Lovejoy( Book )

55 editions published between 1983 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 2,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This history of slavery in Africa from the fifteenth to the early twentieth century examines how indigenous African slavery developed within an international context." "Professor Lovejoy discusses the medieval Islamic slave trade and the Atlantic trade as well as the process of enslavement and the marketing of slaves. He considers the impact of European abolition and assesses slavery's role in African history." "The book corrects the accepted interpretation that African slavery was mild and resulted in the slaves' assimilation. Instead, slaves were used extensively in production, although the exploitation methods and the relationships to world markets differed from those in the Americas. Nevertheless, slavery in Africa, like slavery in the Americas, developed from its position on the periphery of capitalist Europe."--Jacket

Jihād in West Africa during the Age of Revolutions by Paul E Lovejoy( )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Jihād in West Africa during the Age of Revolutions, Paul E. Lovejoy argues that scholars have not given Africa its due consideration as part of either the Atlantic world or the age of revolutions, which is commonly associated with the erosion of European imperialist powers from the 1770s through the 1840s. At the same time, Lovejoy reconceptualizes slavery, showing that during the decades in question, it expanded extensively not only in the United States and Latin America but also in West Africa. Lovejoy provides unprecedented context for the political and cultural role of Islam in Africa from the eighteenth century into the present. Understanding that there is a long tradition of jih̄ad in West Africa, he argues, helps correct the current distortion in understanding the contemporary jihād movement in the Middle East, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Africa."--Page 4 of cover

Pawnship in Africa : debt bondage in historical perspective( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pawnship, a legal category of social and economic dependency, has been largely neglected in the historiography of Africa. Yet the labor of pawns - freeborn women, men and children indentured in payment of interest on a debt - was an important supplement to that of slaves in the precolonial and colonial eras and a substitute for slave labor in the twentieth century. This book examines the origins of pawnship; the economic factors that contributed to its spread; the ideological and institutional framework that supported pawnship; its organization; the experience of pawns; the role of class, gender, and age; changes under colonial rule; and the decline and extinction of pawnship."--Jacket
