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

47 editions published between 1983 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,566 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

This book examines the gradual decline of slavery in Northern Nigeria during the first forty years of colonial rule. At the time of the British conquest, the Sokoto Caliphate was one of the largest slave societies in modern history.

They chart the development of British colonial policy towards resolving the dilemma of slavery and how to end it

Psychoactive substances have been central to the formation of civilizations and the growth of the world economy. This book describes how and why: tea and coffee replaced beer on the breakfast tables of 18th century Europe; in Islamic emirates at the turn of the century, kola nuts formed part of tax payments, and were given as gifts by so-called "big men"; in 1902, opera singers had their doctors prescribe them cocaine to aid singing; and the original version of "coca-cola" was described as a "brain tonic". This collection of essays explores the rich analytical category of psychoactive substances from challenging historical and anthropological perspectives

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

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 102 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
