Abstract:

"Colonial rule began in most of Africa in the later nineteenth century and lasted for about a hundred years. It started with an endless succession of small, but often brutal, wars of conquest, for which the moral justification was that the European conquerors were bringing 'civilization' to 'darkest Africa'. An intrinsic part of this so-called 'civilizing mission' was the eradication of slave raiding, slave trading and slavery."

"This book presents new case studies which enhance our understanding of the process of abolition at the grass-roots level. Some are on areas where there has been little research, such as the German colonies and the Algerian Sahara; others throw new light on questions already debated, such as emancipation on the Gold Coast, or discuss the impact of abolition on particular groups of slaves, such as royal slaves in Nigeria, and concubines in Morocco. By examining the role of slaves in their own emancipation, the immediate and lasting results of abolition, the role of the League of Nations, and the vestiges of slavery in Africa today, this volume adds considerably to our knowledge of an emerging field of African history."--Jacket.
