"The book puts people at the centre of events. It thus serves as a modification to nationalist history with its emphasis on leaders. It presents environmental factors which had been underestimated; for instance, it points to the critical importance of the rinderpest outbreak."--BOOK JACKET. "Helge Kjekshus provides evidence to suggest that the nineteenth century was a period of relative prosperity with well developed trade. He questions the view that warfare was pervasive and that the slave trade led to depopulation. He points to a balance between man and the environment."--Jacket." ;
